Description:
Der kontinuierliche Fortschritt im Bereich der integrierten nanoelektronischen Schaltungen und Systemen erlaubt es, immer komplexere Funktionalität mit stetig steigenden Arbeitsgeschwindigkeiten in einem Systems-on-Chip Ansatz zu integrieren. Das Modul „Advanced Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems“ greift diese technologische Entwicklung auf und befasst sich mit den analogen Grundschaltungen und Konzepten die für Anwendungsfelder wie Wireless-Infrastruktur Anwendungen (z.B. LTE), Transceiver Systeme für elektro-optische Anwendungen (z.B. Silicon Photonics), verlustleistungsarme Sensorsysteme für biomedizinische Anwendungen (z.B. Nervenstimulation) oder Themen aus der Automobilelektronik oder Internet-of-Things ( IoT ) grundlegend sind.

The continuous progress in the field of integrated nanoelectronic circuits and systems makes it possible to integrate more complex functions with ever-increasing operating speeds in a system-on-chip approach. The module "Advanced Analog Integrated Circuits and Systems" addresses these technological development and focuses on the analog basic circuits and concepts necessary for application areas such as wireless infrastructure applications (eg LTE), transceiver systems for electro-optical applications (eg Silicon Photonics) power dissipation low sensor systems for biomedical applications (eg nerve stimulation) or topics of automotive electronics or Internet-of-Things (IoT) are fundamental.
