Analog Integrated Circuit Design
This academic certificate is offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. After completing this certificate, students will have a solid understanding of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuit analysis, design, simulation, and layout for baseband and radio frequency applications; advanced biasing techniques; voltage references; operational amplifiers; frequency compensation techniques; comparators; mixed-signal systems such as phase-locked loops and delay locked loops; data converters including analog-to-digital converters and digital-to-analog converters; high-speed electronic switching, timing, and pulse-shaping techniques; filters, and signal and power integrity for high speed electronic systems.
Certificate Coordinator: Suat Ay, Ph.D.
