MSc thesis project proposal

Self-calibrated precision amplifiers

Precision amplifiers are widely used in sensor interfaces and industrial applications. There are mainly two types of precision amplifiers: amplifiers that employ dynamic element matching techniques, and amplifiers that don’t. In the former category, the nonidealities due to switching introduce input current and intermodulation modulation distortion. In the latter category, the offset and offset drift are often much higher compared to the first category. In this project, we will focus on an innovative precision amplifier that can mitigate the drawbacks of both categories.


The following project activities are expected:

·         Comprehensive literature study

·         System-level behaviour model

·         Transistor-level circuit design

·         A tapeout is highly encouraged

·         Thesis writing


You are an ambitious master student with good analog circuit design knowledge and high motivation. You should have obtained good grades from the following courses: Measurement and instrumentation, Analog circuit design fundamentals, CMOS I/II, Power conversion in CMOS technology.
