Passive components are critical components for analogue and RF circuits. At high frequencies most of these components can be integrated completely on Chip. Low frequency models are not accurate and the usual synthesis techniques do not account for the thick metal thin operating regime that these components operate. This subject will introduce the student to the latest high frequency models of these devices operating in the multi-gigahertz range. Students will be able learn models, loss mechanisms and effects of the substrate in the design of high frequency analogue components. After completing this subject students will be able to design, layout, fabricate and test components compatible with small geometry foundry design rules.
Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to:
