Prerequisites and co-requisites
1. BIPOLAR LOGIC - Basic inverter BJT, RTL, DTL, TTL; ECL Circuits. 2. MOS LOGIC - Logic and CMOS logic gates. Variants. Doors of passage. Programmable matrix. 3. CMOS MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY - Masks, drawing rules. Parameters and performance. 4. VLSI CIRCUIT PROJECT - Dynamic logic structures. Macroblocos: adders, multipliers, memory arrays and programmable logic. 5. ANALOG FUNCTIONAL BLOCKS - Amplifiers, oscillators, comparators, Schmitt triggers, VCO, mixers, PLLs. 6. DIGITAL-ANALOG AND DIGITAL ANALOGUE CONVERTERS (D / A, A / D) - Conditioning of analog signals. S & H Circuits. Converter Parameters. Convertor architectures: counter, double ramp, successive approximations; sigma-delta; ladder R / 2R; "flash" or parallel. 7. STATIC POWER CONVERTERS. - AC / DC and DC / DC type converters. Regulating and control electronic circuits. Control of semiconductor power devices. Simulation
Know the integrated analog and digital electronic circuits, from their functional description to the semiconductor manufacturing masks. Use of ancillary computer tools for the design and evaluation of digital cells and analog functional blocks. Concepts of static power converters and control electronics. In order to consolidate the knowledge acquired and allow a more comprehensive analysis, the use of auxiliary computer tools for the design and evaluation of digital cells and analogical functional blocks is promoted.
Knowledge, abilities and skills to be acquired
Study of bipolar logic families and MOS. Analysis of noise margins. Know the integrated analog and digital electronic circuits, from their functional description to the semiconductor manufacturing masks. Use of auxiliary computer tools for the design and evaluation of digital cells. Analysis and synthesis of analogical functional blocks. Analysis and synthesis of oscillator circuits and signal generators. Concepts of static power converters and control electronics.
Teaching methodologies and assessment
The curricular unit is taught through theoretical classes, where theoretical material is presented, practical classes dedicated to problem solving, and laboratory classes dedicated to the assembly and analysis of real circuits. The discipline is evaluated according to the components: Theoretical Test (TE); o Arithmetic mean of laboratory work (TL). The final mark in continuous assessment (NF) in the subject is obtained according to the formula: NF = (0.6 x ET) + (0.4 x TL), with ET> / = 10 Values, TL> / = 10 Values Case the student does not obtain approval in continuous evaluation, will have access to the examination of 1ª Epoch. Only those students who previously enroll in the course will have access to the 2nd Period exam. There will be a practical exam (weight of 40%), on a date to be agreed, for students who have not obtained continuous assessment in the practical component. The practical component is always valued in the assessment by exam, with a weight of 40%.
