Course Overview:

Analog circuit design field has myriad opportunities in various fields – Data converter/signal conditioning, Power Management, High speed interfaces, Instrumentation etc.

Job opportunities in Analog Circuit Design are available for engineers with passion towards Analog design, strong analytical problem solving capability and strong work discipline/commitment.

This course is designed for the working professionals with at least 1+ years of work experience in VLSI / Electronics Industry, who want to learn and possibly switch to Analog Circuit Design field.

What do you get out of this Course?

  • Exposure to basic concepts of Analog Circuits, design methodologies and design problems underneath.
  • Complete theory part is backed up with tool based lab sessions, hence learning analog circuit basics becomes easy.
  • Once basic concepts are strengthened, a chance to design quite a few building blocks.
  • At the end, strong confidence to attempt to take a shot at complex analog circuits.

What Opportunities could open up for you?

  • Entry level Analog circuit designer or high speed IO circuit designer openings.
  • Confidence to design/analyse more complex circuits. Potential to move up the ladder.
  • Understand customer problems/requirements quickly, and capability to provide optimum solution

Uniqueness of this course:

  • Focus on strengthening analog circuit basics and intuitive understanding of the designs – not just on tools.
  • All the concepts are reinforced with circuit simulation for ease of understanding.
  • Tools are accessible even from your home through VPN connection, so that learning is extended beyond weekly class room sessions.
  • Self-experimenting with IFs and BUTs of circuit configurations to help in addressing practical problems.

Training Delivery Model:

  • Online Live Virtual Classrooms
  • Trainer Led Lab Sessions via VPN
  • Materials Shared before every session.
  • Interactive sessions scheduled after every topic

Training Materials:

  • Hand-outs of training materials will be provided
  • Reference Materials will be shared
