NO discussion sessions, labs, or office hours this week.
Course Overview
(refer to detailed syllabus)
The Integrated Circuit (IC)
An IC consists of interconnected electronic components in a single piece (“chip”) of semiconductor material.
From a Few, to Billions
By connecting a large number of components, each performing simple operations, an IC that performs very complex tasks can be built.
The degree of integration has increased at an exponential pace over the past ~40 years.
EECS 105 in the Grand Scheme
Example electronic system: cell phone
EECS 105: Emphasis on Analog IC’s
Example: 14-bit analog-to-digital converter
Y. Chiu, IEEE Int’l Solid-State Circuits Conference, 2004.
Digital or Analog Signal?
X1(t) is operating at 100Mb/s and X2(t) is operating at 1Gb/s.
A digital signal operating at very high frequency is very “analog”.
Circuit Simulation using SPICE
SPICE = Simulation Program with IC Emphasis
Invented at Berkeley (released in 1972)
.DC: Find the DC operating point of a circuit
.TRAN: Solve the transient response of a circuit (solve a system of generally non-linear ordinary differential equations via adaptive time-step solver)
.AC: Find steady-state response of circuit to a sinusoidal excitation
