Welcome to AICDesign

This site is dedicated to providing resources for students and professionals in the area of analog integrated circuit design using CMOS and BiCMOS technologies.  The resources are designed to help understand the principles, concepts, and techniques of analog integrated circuit design.  The professional resources include online lectures on how to do analog integrated circuit design step-by-step using design procedures.

A COURSE ON THE RELIABILITY OF ANALOG CIRCUITS IS NOW AVAILABLE  

A course with two lessons on the reliability of analog circuits has been added to the site.  The first lesson includes the reliability of CMOS analog circuits which includes the influence of hot carrier injection, oxide integrity, time-dependent dielectric breakdown, negative bias temperature instability, and electro migration.  The second lesson covers design tools and design for reliability with examples will also be included.

AN UPDATED COURSE ON ESD FOR ANALOG CIRCUITS IS IN DEVELOPMENT

This course will include a simple snapback model suitable for SPICE or SPECTRE. This model can be independent or dependent on rate of rise of the ESD voltage. There are 6 lessons covering the topics of the design and simulation of ESD protection for analog circuits and 2 laboratories that deal with the simulation of ESD output and ESD input circuit protection. Plans are to publish this course on the site in May 2021.
