Proposed ECE course: Board-level analog design
Bruce Land

Students have shown interest in learning how to design analog applications circuits at the board level.
Audience would be students who have taken 3150, so probably 4000-level.
Motivation is to acquaint students with integrated circuit building blocks, their use, and non-ideal behavior.

Possible topics:

The course would be taught as a lecture/lab course, with emphasis on the simulation/testing cycle.
There would be about 4 lab assignments and a final project.
Possible labs/applications:

Labs and final projects would be limited to very little (or no) microcrocontroller technique, but the noise generated by a cpu would be instructive for some labs and analog aspects of interfacing (aliasing, accuracy, level shifting) could be useful.
