Students will gain advanced knowledge in analog and digital integrated circuit design. The subject itself

deals with the hierarchical design of integrated circuits in BCD technologies compared to CMOS technologies.

The subject further emphasizes good design practices, advanced building blocks in BCD technologies, advanced IP blocks and

their design process. An integral part of the subject are topics focused on the design of power MOSFETs,

Linear voltage regulators (LDO), electronic fuses eFUSE, switching power supplies on a chip (SMPS)

digital Front-end (FE) and digital Back-end (BE) design and detailed analysis of layouts. The subject is dealt with further

advanced error analysis methods, using analytical methods such as optical and electron microscopy,

(Optical Beam Induced Resistance Change - Obirch and Emission Microscopy EmMi).
