Using the Advanced Design System (ADS) in Electronic Design

Modul group: XXX

The students gain an in-depth understanding of a significant analog simulation tool. They demonstrate their abilities to set up as well as to stream-line circuit simulations. Attendees employ ADS in high-frequency layout. They are used to ADS data structures and recognize ways to fully exploit their composition. Participants regularly scrutinize and critically judge their simulation results.

E-Learning combinded with online-lectures:
  • starting from 05-18-2021 till 07-31-2021

  

The Description of the module you find here.

  • The ADS project structure
  • Setting up, performing and simplifying schematics simulations
  • Using the data display
  • Understanding ADS data structures
  • Measurement Equations
  • Optimizing circuits with the help of ADS
  • (Semi-) automatic layout generation
  • 2d electromagnetic simulation
  • Exporting the layout

The online part of the study programme takes place in self-study and in the form of group work. For the self-study part of the programme, video lectures with detailed information about the contents and an elaborated script are offered. The script has been developed especially for extra-occupational learners in regard to the didactic concept of Ulm University. It contains breaks for independent study, multiple and single choice tests, quizzes, exercises, etc.

Your mentor will offer online seminars in periodic intervals. These seminars will help you to handle the exercises and work on the learning topics.

An online forum for exchange with the other students will also be available.

Bachelor-Level Analog Design Skills Some understanding of S-parameters is helpful

Recommended requirements:

  • Desktop computer or notebook, with a supported version of Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS or Linux
  • Headset
  • Current version of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Microsoft Edge
  • Access to the internet (e.g., via xDSL, Cable, LTE, 5G) with a minimum data rate of 3 Mbit/s for downstream and 384 kbit/s for upstream.

In case of questions regarding the technical requirements, please don't hesitate to contact us.

After finishing the module successfully you will get a certificate and a supplement, which will list the contents of the module and the competences you have acquired. The supplement confirms the equivalent of 4 credit points (ECTS).

Participation fee for certificate course: 780 Euro

Fee after matriculation: 660 Euro
