This course will introduce advanced concepts in analog circuit design specifically relevant to CMOS IC design. It will cover circuit noise and mismatch, their analysis, and their impact on CMOS opamp design. As prerequisites, the student is expected to have undergone a course on (a) basic circuit theory and analysis (b) signals and systems and (c) MOS analog circuits. At the end of this course, the student should be able to design and analyze several types of CMOS opamps at the transistor level.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Prof. S Aniruddhan is an assistant professor in the Integrated Circuits and Systems group of the department of Electrical Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He works broadly in the area of Analog IC design, with specific focus on RFIC design. He obtained a B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Madras in 2000, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2006. Between 2006 and 2011, he worked in the RF-Analog group at Qualcomm Inc., San Diego, designing integrated circuits for Cellular RF applications.
1. Join the course
Learners may pay the applicable fees and enrol to a course on offer in the portal and get access to all of its contents including assignments. Validity of enrolment, which includes access to the videos and other learning material and attempting the assignments, will be mentioned on the course. Learner has to complete the assignments and get the minimum required marks to be eligible for the certification exam within this period.
COURSE ENROLMENT FEE: The Fee for Enrolment is Rs. 3000 + GST
2. Watch Videos+Submit Assignments
After enrolling, learners can watch lectures and learn and follow it up with attempting/answering the assignments given.
3. Get qualified to register for exams
A learner can earn a certificate in the self paced course only by appearing for the online remote proctored exam and to register for this, the learner should get minimum required marks in the assignments as given below:
CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE
Assignment score = Score more than 50% in at least 9/12 assignments.
Exam score = 50% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.”
4. Register for exams
The certification exam is conducted online with remote proctoring. Once a learner has become eligible to register for the certification exam, they can choose a slot convenient to them from what is available and pay the exam fee. Schedule of available slot dates/timings for these remote-proctored online examinations will be published and made available to the learners.
EXAM FEE: The remote proctoring exam is optional for a fee of Rs.1500 + GST. An additional fee of Rs.1500 will apply for a non-standard time slot.
5. Results and Certification
After the exam, based on the certification criteria of the course, results will be declared and learners will be notified of the same. A link to download the e-certificate will be shared with learners who pass the certification exam.
