Design of a Switched Capacitor Circuit using Telescopic opamp Technology Used: Cadence Virtuoso

• Designed a telescopic opamp with CMFB and biasing circuitry, meeting the required gain, bandwidth and phase margin.

• Developed a low power and low gain error switched capacitor circuit using the designed opamp.

• Implemented the layout of the circuit, floorplan optimized for area. Digital Backend of High Speed ADC

Technology Used: Cadence Virtuoso, Cadence Encounter, Verilog

• Designed an ADC digital backend in 250 nm CMOS technology to run at a speed of 4GHz with resolution of 5 bits.

• Generated bubble error corrector and encoder using Verilog and Cadence Encounter for place and route.

• Custom designed the DEMUX at input using CMOS logic to down-sample the 4GHz input to 500MHz. Design of SRAM

Technology Used: Cadence Virtuoso

• Designed a 4 bit 4x1 6T SRAM in 250nm technology with driver and sense amplifier, row decoder and column.

• Created the Schematic & Layout using Spectre & Cadence Virtuoso respectively.

• Evaluated the parameters such as hold, read and write stability and noise margin, and ran LVS and DRC checks.
