Titre: CMOS IC Design for Wireless Transceivers
Conférencier: Mohammed Ismail , Dept. of Electrical Engineering, Ohio State University, USA.
Lieu: Université de Montreal, Pavillon Andre-Aisenstadt, 2900 Edouard-Montpetit ,
Date et heure:
vendredi le 15 mai 1998 de 09:00 à 17:00

Résumé: This course will provide an introduction to RF front end and baseband design in sub-micron CMOS technology. Target applications include cordless phones and mobile communications transceivers operating in the 900 MHz to 1.8 GHz range. The course will cover the basics of designing low voltage low power CMOS building blocks for wireless communications.

Introduction to RF microelectronics
Modulation and multiple access techniques (TDMA,CDMA)
RF transceiver architectures (hetrodyne, homodyne, low or zero IF)
LNAs and mixers
VCOs and ICOs
Power amplifiers
Baseband building blocks
Digitally programmable transceivers for multimode mobile systems

Note : Knowledge of basic transistor modeling and biasing as well as fundamentals of communication systems is preferred.

Note biographique: Mohammed Ismail received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronics and telecommunications engineering from Cairo University in 1974 and 1978, and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Manitoba in 1983.

He is a professor of Electrical Engineering, at The Ohio State University. He has held several positions previously in both industry and academia and has served as a corporate consultant to nearly 20 companies in the United States and abroad. He held visiting appointments at the Norwegian Institute of Technology, University of Oslo, University of Twente, Tokyo Institute of Technology, and Helsinki University of Technology. He has authored many publications on VLSI circuit design and signal processing and has been awarded several patents in the area of analog VLSI. He has coedited and coauthored several books including the recent text on "Analog VLSI Signal and Information Processing", McGraw Hill, 1994. He advised the work of 12 Ph.D. students, 35 M.S. students, and 11 visiting scholars. His current interests include low-voltage/low-power VLSI circuits, statis- tical computer-aided design and optimization, and VLSI information pro- cessing.

Dr. Ismail has been the recipient of several awards including the IEEE 1984 Outstanding Teacher Award, the NSF Presidential Young Investigator Award in 1985, the OSU Lumley Research Award in 1993, the SRC Inventor Recognition Awards in 1992 and 1993, and a Fulbright Award in 1995. He is the founder of the "International Journal of Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing" and serves as the Journal's Editor-in-Chief (North America). He has served the IEEE in many editorial and administrative capacities, including General Chair of the 29th Midwest Symposium on CAS, the Circuits and Systems Society's Editor of the "IEEE Circuits and Devices Magazine" and Associate Editor of the "IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems", "IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks", and "IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems". He cofounded Micrys, Inc. (formerly Chip Works, Inc.), a commercial VLSI design company specialized in analog and mixed-signal ASIC's. Dr. Ismail is a Fellow of IEEE.
