EE4605 Integrated Circuits and Systems for Wireless Applications
The course starts with the discussion of analogue intensive wireless systems. With this knowledge, we step to the (RF)IC implementation level and provide detailed / dedicated design techniques/considerations for:
- Wireless receiver and transmitter architectures (HW1)
- Low-noise, high linearity RF Mixers
- Amplifier classes and the design of energy efficient transmitters (HW3).
- on-chip high Q-passive components, capacitors, varactors, inductors, transformers and transmission lines
- Voltage controlled RF oscillators with low phase noise (HW4)
- ESD protection, on-chip isolation, IC floor / IO planning and testing
- Understand the philosophy behind various wireless transceiver architectures
- To understand the full design-cycle from wireless concept, RFIC design, to the final testing
- Master the integration techniques for wireless components, circuits and systems
- Being able to analyze and design integrated RF transceiver front-end circuits, like LNAs, mixers VCO’s and PAs.
- To become familiar with typical computer-aided design tools used to design RF integrated circuits and systems like Cadance and Keysight’s ADS
Literature and Study Materials: Hand-outs+recommended books ( Behzad Razavi 2nd edition )
Assessment: RF design related homework’s (50% final grade) + written exam (50% final grade)
