Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to independently design and simulate an analog integrated circuit with cadence, which is a standard software in the area of IC-design. Furthermore they are able to layout the circuit. They are also able to design a printed circuit board for high frequency applications.

Subject of course

Design and layout of an IC with Cadence

Design of PCBs

Teaching methods


The students practice design and layout of an analog integrated circuit. Furthermore they practice the layout of a printed circuit board (PCB) for high frequency applications.
