IMEC offers analog IC design course

August 26, 2014 // By Peter Clarke
Research institute IMEC is moving into training with the use of its own specialist researchers and guest lecturers.

A good example is a 60-hour course on advanced analog IC design being given by way of 20 three-hour lectures presented by Willy Sansen, professor emeritus at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. The lectures are presented weekly from September 20 to March 31.

The lectures are intended for designers of analog IP blocks and circuits and their managers. Professor Sansen has updated his analog design essentials lectures taking into account continued scaling power supply voltage and changing behavior of devices with scaling of geometry.

Topics covered include BSIM6/EKV models for nanometer CMOS design, design for low noise, and issues around a multitude of amplifier and conversion circuits. For Belgian students and academics the course is free, everyone else pays.
