Short Courses for Industry

There are currently 2 short courses for industry offered by Prof. Fayed. Interested companies should contact him directly at fayed.1@osu.edu for specific details and arrangements. 

Power Management for VLSI

This short course introduces the principles of power management integrated circuits with a focus on VLSI systems. This includes system architectures, performance metrics, testing & characterization, practical implementations & on-chip integration issues, design considerations for portable, wireless, and RF SoCs in nanometer CMOS. The course is designed to address industrial audience including analog and mixed-signal design engineers; product, test, and application engineers involved with PMICs; design engineers interested in power management in nanometer CMOS technologies and integration with mixed-signal and RF SoCs. RFIC design engineers will also find this course helpful for understanding issues related to powering RF circuits. Technical managers will also learn current technology limitations and future technology trends. The course is offered in several formats: a two-parts comprehensive offering (each part 3 days) that can be offered in sequence in two separate weeks, and a reduced single part offering (5-days). For the exact topics covered in each of the two formats, please see the detailed description/outline links below. Alternative formats can also be considered.
