The booklet offers the easiest contributions, extracted from the theses written by means of the scholars who've attended the second one variation of the grasp in Microelectronics and platforms that has been prepared by way of the Universita degli Studi di Catania and that has been held on the STMicroelectronics corporation (Catania web site) from could 2000 to January 2001. specifically, the pointed out grasp has been prepared one of the a variety of ac tivities of the "Istituto Superiore di Catania consistent with l. a. Formazione di Eccellenza". The Institute is without doubt one of the Italian community of universities chosen by way of MURST (Ministry collage examine clinical Technology). the 1st objective of tl;te grasp in Microelectronics and structures is to extend the abilities of the scholars with the Laurea measure in Physics or electric Engineering within the extra complicated parts as VLSI procedure layout, high-speed low-voltage low-power circuitS and RF platforms. the second one goal has been to contain within the academic software businesses like STMicroelectronics, accessory and ITEL, attracted to emergent microelectronics subject matters, to cooperate with the college in constructing high-level study initiatives. along with the educational job throughout the instructing hours, supplied by means of nationwide and foreign researchers, an important a part of the college has been devoted to the presentation of particular CAD instruments and experiments with a view to organize the scholars to unravel particular difficulties throughout the degree interval and within the thesis work.

For this purpose refer to Figure 14. To test the chip a voltage step was coupled via a lOOnF capacitor to the input node of the tracklhold circuit (trigger low: track mode). The resulting signal exhibited a very large overshoot that was not observed during the simulations. Now, the output node of the tracklhold was loaded with the probe of both an oscilloscope and a multi-meter so we wandered if the insertion of such instrumentation could be the origin of the discrepancy between the simulated response and the measured one.
The Current TrackIHold Circuit The circuit used to implement the track/hold block is shown in Figure 5; there are five different stages in it: an input differential pair (Q[, Q2), a shunt gain stage, a common emitter (Q3), a large capacitor for peak voltage storing (C s) and some compensating circuitry, an output buffer (Qs, Q6)' . ( Lf' .. Figure 5. The tracklhold circuit currently in use. In light grey from left to right: the input differential pair (Ql, Q2), the shunt gain stage, the emitter follower (Q3), the holding capacitor (Cs) and finally the output stage (Q5, Q6).

Experimental Results In this section we will describe and try to explain the results of the measurements performed on the chip. For this purpose refer to Figure 14. To test the chip a voltage step was coupled via a lOOnF capacitor to the input node of the tracklhold circuit (trigger low: track mode).
