Aims and Scope: Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing


Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing is an archival peer reviewed journal publishing research and tutorial papers on the design and applications of analog, radio frequency (RF) and mixed signal integrated circuits (ICs), and signal processing circuits and systems. It is published monthly with worldwide distribution to engineers, researchers, educators, and libraries.

The journal promotes and expedites the dissemination of new research results and tutorial views. There is an exciting and large volume of research activity in the field worldwide. Engineers and researchers are striving to build complete systems on chip (SoC) by integrating analog and RF circuits in chip fabrication technologies optimized for digital ICs, and to bridge the gap between classical analog work and recent advances in fabrication technologies with improved analog, RF and mixed signal capabilities. As we move to nanometer technologies, analog and RF work is showing signs of dramatic changes with emphasis on interdisciplinary research efforts combining device, circuit, technology issues. Consequently, new design concepts, strategies and design tools as well as new applications in wireless and wire line communications, consumer electronics, automotive, control and biomedical systems are being unveiled.
