Design Content Description
Approach:

Approach: The laboratory material is of design in nature. PSPICE for design verification is emphasized throughout the course. The laboratory consists of 6 PSPICE labs, covering topicsfrom MOSFET characteristics, MOS amplifier, MOS current source, MOS inverters, CMOSlogic gate, and Pass Transistor Logic. The hands-on labs cover ring oscillators and BJT amplifier. The two-week design project covers the layout of CMOS Logic gates.
