Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have comprehensive knowledge about current microelectronic production methods. This knowledge will enable them to classify and assess the limits and possibilities of integrated semiconductor devices and their circuit families.
Students will have detailed knowledge about common circuit families. They will understand the differences between the different circuit families and be able to analyze and evaluate them by using numerically generated simulation results with regard to possible applications.
