I thoroughly enjoyed this class, and Professor Darabi prepares you very well for Analog IC design. Class is split up w/ a 27.5% project, 27.5% midterm, 43% final, and 3% participation/survey. Homework is totally optional, but was very good practice for exam and project, with 2 written homeworks and 1 Cadence homework. The project is about designing a differential op-amp with certain gain, swing, and bandwidth requirements, and was overall relatively easy to complete, and gives good practice into using Cadence Virtuoso. The class lectures were very comprehensive and insightful, and Darabi did a good job answering questions and building intuition. The exams are not too bad, and he still curves very well regardless. The TA Somanshu was also excellent in giving us additional practice in his discussion sections, as well as being generous to provide extra office hours where we could ask questions. Overall, I would definitely take this class again.
Deeply grateful to him. You have to believe in yourself, fight until the end, and you will receive what you deserve. Initially, my understanding of CMOS was poor during my undergraduate studies, which led to struggles with both midterms and finals despite my hard work. However, he still awarded me a B-, which was higher than I expected. I am so thankful and will continue to work hard in my future courses.
