Dynamical System Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits
Fall 2022 (GT Metz)

Professor: Jennifer Hasler

Class time: TBD

Description: This course presents linear and nonlinear dynamical systems theory from the perspective of analog circuit analysis and design. Topics that will be covered include equilibrium point analysis, perturbation theory and bifurcation analysis, as they pertain to such circuit issues as stability, distortion and hysteresis. The theoretical presentation of each topic will be reinforced with weekly experiments on a field programmable analog array (FPAA), which is a reconfigurable analog circuit test bed. The course culminates in a project in which students exploit dynamical systems theory in the design of a circuit of moderate complexity, such as automatic gain control, a silicon neuron, or a low-distortion filter.
