Prof. Igor Filanovsky, University  of Alberta, Canada, in Collaboration with TUT and the Graduate Schools TISE and GETA, will discuss in 20 lecture hours the most essential and advanced nano-CMOS OpAmp architectures for accuracy, power/speed ratio and stable rail-to-rail operation. Essentially the related structures of voltage references, PTAT/CTT circuits, LDO, voltage sub-regulators and IC protection will be covered to secure successful industrial applications.

                       Course Assessment:  Course Attendees are expected to attend the Lectures and solve the given homework problems. Then they will receive 3 Credit Units (CU);  and a grade 'Pass'. If they take and succeed on the Exam on 8th April, 2013 (Monday) with a grade equal or higher than 2 (in scale 1÷5), they will receive additional 2 CU.
