Practice includes problem solving, MATLAB and Laboratory Project
This course is studied based
on several obligatory courses including the subjects on electronics,
automatic control, power electronics, etc.. It aims at training
the students to have elementary designing (or synthesis) ability.
The students are asked to design some circuits or small systems
according to some certain functional requirements and some given
information. The system to be designed belongs to one of what
follows: sequence controller, speed regulator or some other
kinds of automatic control systems. For every student, both
an overall design and a certain assambly design are required.
After designing, the students may be asked to implement their
circuits or systems themselves (depending on the laboratory
conditions and the material prerequisitcs).
Year Project (ELEC402)
Processing & Data Conversion Technique (Proposed)
Integrated Circuit Design (Proposed)
to Research (IMSE001)
Circuit Design (IMSE004)
The primary goal of this course is to introduce
basic electronic principles needed by the integrated circuit
designer and to discuss engineering tradeoffs and practical
considerations that are necessary for the student to make the
transition from the classroom to industry as an integrated circuit
designer. After the introduction of these principles, some basic
circuitsm either digital or analog are presented together with
one real advanced VLSI CMOS process. The evaluation is composed
by several assignment works of simulation and layout design
of basic circuits in the beginning of the semester and after
mid-term the students will make a real IC design that will be
implemented in a Multi-Project Chip.
for Telecommunication and Signal Processing (IMSE011)
The primary goal of this course
is to present the most important functions that can be encountered
in most of the applications in Telecommunications and Signal
Processing. These functions that include, namely: Sampling,
Discrete-Time and Digital Filtering and A/D and D/A Conversion,
are presented both in theory and practice. The theory includes
the basic fundamentals associated with each function and the
practice comprises the presentation of different architectures
for implementation, using for example Switched-Capacitor and
Digital Techniques. The evaluation is composed by 4 laboratory
works of simulation and electronic testing that will include
the design of filters, A/D and D/A converters. The Software
used for simulation includes the SWITCAP II program (for functional
SC-simulation) and the HSPICE program (for electronic simulation
at the transistor level). The Hardware used for electronic design
and testing includes the MF10 (Integrated Switched-Capacitor
Filter) and the Digital Signal Processor - Texas TMS 320C25
