From 30.01.2017 to 04.02.2017


IIT Kharagpur and IIT Bombay are working together with Engineering Colleges of India to enhance the teaching skills of our faculty colleagues in core Engineering and Science subjects by conducting ISTE Short Term Training Programmes (STTPs) under Train Ten Thousand Teachers (T10KT) project using 353 established remote centers across India. Participating teachers attend live lectures at a remote center close to their own college, and also attend tutorial and lab sessions conducted in the same centers. The lecture transmission and live interaction takes place in distance mode using A-VIEW technology through Internet at the selected remote centers across the country.Since December 2009, a number of two-week ISTE STTPs were conducted on various Engineering subjects. We have reached out to more than 1,00,000 teachers and helped them to enhance their teaching skills in these subjects. In the backdrop of the success of these STTPs, we now announce another 6 day ISTE STTP on “CMOS, Mixed Signal and Radio Frequency VLSI Design” during January 30 – February 4, 2017 under Blended MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) model


Design, analysis and implementation of CMOS Mixed Signal and RFIC are attractive topics both in academia and Industry. CMOS RFIC design is a challenging and critical engineering task
particularly in the arena of deep submicron technology. There is a strong demand of manpower having thorough knowledge and hands on experiences in VLSI design using state of the art EDA tools. The course will focus on those issues along with case studies.

  1. Analog front end for sensor interface: Instrumentation Amplifier (IA), chopper, Variable Gain Amplifier (VGA).
  2. Data converters: SAR & pipe lined ADC.
  3. Digital VLSI: a) Static MOS gate circuits b) High-Speed CMOS Logic Design c) Transfer Gate and Dynamic Logic Designed) VLSI architectures for video processing.
  4. RF circuits: Introduction to RFIC design.
  5. Design and implementation of typical RF Tx-Rx sub-components:(a) Low Noise Amplifier (LNA) (b) Mixer c) Frequency synthesizer (d) Power amplifier (e) Lay out and chip level integration.


From pen paper design of various mixed signal/RF circuit blocks to schematic level implementation and then subsequent physical design, post-layout synthesis and simulation.


The duration of the STTP will be six working days. It will start on Monday 30th January, 2017 at 9:30 AM and will end on Saturday 4th February, 2017. The participants must report to the respective remote centers by 8:00 AM on 30th January,2017.

It is mandatory that while registering for the STTP, the participants should submit a scanned copy of a letter from the Principal/Head of the Institute. Format of this is available in our college website. Registration without this letter will not be confirmed. NOTE: Please note that this STTP is conducted by the e-Outreach project of IIT Kharagpur, under the National Mission on Education through ICT. Live recording of the course and other created contents will be released under Open Source through a portal. The recorded CD/DVD of the course lectures will be available for distribution at cost, to any individual/ institution. All participants are required to sign an authorization for such release of contents contributed by them during and after the workshop. Recognition and citation will be made for all contributors.
