Abstract
A laboratory based course for Electrical Engineering Masters students that teaches students how to design a process flow for metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors (MOSFETs) that are optimized a high DC gain is presented. This course was developed, because while much of analog circuit design has to use processes that are optimized for high speed digital operation, there still exists design space for transistors that are optimized for analog operation in the low frequency domain. An example of this design space would be circuits that interface with neurons.
