5DD17 Circuit Analysis

The students will be able to apply circuit analysis techniques to solve electrical networks composed of RLC and operational amplifiers in the steady state and the transient state to solve, develop, and propose electrical network solutions to application related problems. The students will develop a thinking style and a problem-solving method based on physical insight. The abstract mathematic line is accompanied by practical applications.

5LIH0 Digital Integrated Circuit Design

The students will learn how to manage the complexity of today's digital systems and very large scale integrated circuits. Starting from a solid understanding of the operation of electronic devices (diodes and transistors) and an in-depth study of the nucleus of digital design (inverters), the students will move to more complex modules such as logic gates, registers, arithmetic units, and memories, and make design decisions from a system's perspective. The students will be able to identify the dominant design parameters, and what aspects of the design he has to focus on. Global circuit effects such as timing, interconnect, and power consumption have to be taken into account.

5LID0 Systems on Sillicon

The students will learn the design trajectory to implement complex Systems on a Chip. Emphasis lies on design approaches to improve the overall system performance in terms of robustness, power-delay product, and hands-on experience to design an integrated circuit using commercial EDA tools. The students will understand the various tradeoffs between area, time, power, cost, and design effort, and also have the basic knowledge and hands-on experience to carry out both the front and back end stages of implementing circuits on silicon.
