### Course Format

Two 1 1/2 hour lectures per week. Problem sets (6 total) given out every one to two weeks – they will be project-oriented and involve a combination of analytical derivations and simulation in Hspice and CppSim (A C++ system level simulator). Project 1 will be focused on the design and SPICE simulation of a high speed frequency divider for phase-locked loop applications. Project 2 will be focused on the design and CppSim simulation of a GMSK transceiver for wireless applications. A midterm exam will be given. There is no final exam.
