On the basis of microelectronic Circuits I and II, you should now have a good understanding of semiconductor transistors

         and the related analog circuits. You should be familiar with the operation principles of MOSFETs and BJTs, single-stage and

         multi-stage amplifiers, frequency response, feedback, and fundamental design of operational amplifiers (OP-Amps). In this class,

         you need to explore more on these subjects. In addition to book study and hand calculation, extensive hands on works about

         simulating circuit (HSPICE) and building actual amplifiers (both breadboard and PCB) are required. These will be very useful

         experiences for EE students especially if you would like to be a top-notch analog IC designer in the future.
