Homework is due at the beginning of the lecture period on the date that it is listed. Late homework will not be accepted or graded.
Be sure that you can attend the midterm and the final, early, late or make-up exams are not available. If you cannot make the scheduled exam times, or have, or will, need to make travel arrangements that will not allow you to be present at these times do not sign up for this class.
The first 4 lectures will be fairly fast paced as this material should be mostly review, although it will likely be presented in a form and from a viewpoint that may be unfamiliar. This is fundamental material for the course, make sure that you understand it and be sure to see me if you need any extra help or explanation, this can be challenging material, don't be shy and don't wait to start a serious study of this material.
The topics for the last lecture are not finalized. Let me know if you have particular interests or needs.
|9/22||1||Introduction, MOS Device Review||Chapter 1, 2 Razavi|
|9/27||2||Single Stage Amplifiers, Review||Chapter 3 Razavi|
|3||Single Stage Amplifiers Review||Chapter 3 Razavi||
HW 1 EE221/172
Problems: 2.5, 2.7, 3.3, 3.19 a,b,f; 3.20 a,c,e
Plus Fill out the remainder of the "Rule of Thumb" Chart
For your sketches in problems indicate region of operation and important transition points, these are things like, saturation to triode, cutoff to conduction, sign reversals etc. Careful the transistors in the sketching problems operate in wierd bias regions, that change, so you need to think carefully.
