The evolution of Very large scale integration (VLSI) technology has developed tothe point where millions of transistors can be integrated on a single die or "chip"where integrated circuits once filled the role of subsystem component partitionedat analog-digital boundaries. They now integrate complete systems on a chip by combiningboth analog-digital functions. Complementary metal oxide semiconductors technologyhas been the mainstay in mixed signal implementations because it provides densityand power savings on the digital side, and a good mix of components for analog design.
Due in part to the regularity and granularity of digital circuit computer aideddesign (CAD) methodologies have been very successful in automating the design ofdigital systems given a behavioral description of the function desired. Such isnot the case for analog circuit design. Analog design still requires a "hands on" designapproach in general. Moreover many of the design techniques used for discrete circuitsare not applicable to the design of analog /mixed – signal VLSI circuits. It is necessaryto examine closely the design process of analog circuit and to identify those principlesthat will increase design productivity and the designer′s chances for success.
All Engineering, Science Graduates students are eligible for this training, basicCriteria is knowledge of Internet. Basic knowledge of any programming language wouldbe a plus point.
