General
This course is focussed on analog electronics with an emphasis on transistor level design of integrated circuits. Topics to be covered include transistor amplifiers (differential and multistage amplifiers), integrated circuit biasing techniques, output stage design and IC amplifier building blocks, frequency response of amplifiers, stability and compensation techniques for amplifiers using negative feedback.
