understanding of the basic theory of semiconductor materials, as well as the physical construction and operation of type-n and type-p MOS transistor, to know the implementation of the basic logic gates through transistor MOS (CMOS technology) and to be able to calculate their basic performance parameters (delay and power consumption),
to be able to design basic amplifiers via MOS transistors and calculate their basic performance parameters (gain and bandwidth),
to simulate electronic circuits using a computer, a process that occupies a significant part of the design process prior to final implementation.
