Course Prerequisites

Understanding of basic CMOS circuits at the undergraduate level. At IIT Madras, the equivalent prerequisite courses are Analog Circuits and Networks and Systems. Recorded lectures of EC201 (Analog Circuits) can be viewed here EC201 Video Lectures). If you are shaky with the fundamentals, you are urged to view the lectures and do the problem sets of EC201.

Textbook(s) and References

Listed below are some textbooks. There is also a host of information available on the WWW.

  1. Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits : Behzad Razavi
  2. Design and Analysis of Analog Integrated Circuits : Paul Gray and Robert Meyer
  3. Analog Integrated Circuits : David Johns and Ken Martin


There will be design assigments due approximately every two weeks. These will count for 50% of the grade. Quiz 1, Quiz 2 and the end semester exam count for 15%,15% and 20% respectively.

Much of the learning is this design course is done through the simulation assignments. You can use the CAD tools available with the Institute to do the assignments. Information about software downloads, intsallation and transistor model files can be found here. For all assignments use the 0.18um TSMC CMOS model parameters and a supply voltage of 1.8 V .

Design Assignments

Assignments will be posted below.

Assignments must be submitted by Email to ONLY, as a single PDF file attachment.

The file must be named according to roll number in the following manner - if your roll number is EE08M007, and you are submitting assignment one, call your file ee08M007_01.pdf

Plagiarism (euphemistically excessive collaboration, really copying) is a serious offence. By submitting assignments you are implicitly agreeing that you have been honest in doing your assignment. If I find out that you have plagiarized, you will accept the penalty I deem fit.


Attendance will be strictly enforced and those falling short will not be permitted to write the end sem exam. TAs will go around the room taking attendance at the beginning of the class. If you are more than 5 min. late, please do not enter the classroom.
