Call for Papers (Special Issue on Advanced Analog and Mixed-Mode Integrated Circuits)
Call for Papers
In nowadays digital world, analog and mixed-mode chip market still maintain up to 6.6% annual compound growth rate among the years of 2017-2022, according to IC Insights’ forecast. Many novel design techniques have been reported and a lot of achievements have been reached in this field. However, analog and mixed-mode integrated circuits still face significant design challenges, caused by increasingly unfriendly process environment and increasingly demanding design specifications. The SoC integration further increase the design complexity of analog and mixed-mode circuits. New circuit topology and design methodology have to be proposed to address these design challenges.
In this special issue of the Journal of Semiconductors, we call for the most advanced research results on various analog and mixed-mode integrated circuits. We invite submissions of original research articles/communications and comprehensive reviews to this special issue. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
l Phased-locked loop (PLL)-based clock generators.
l Power management circuits,such as AC-DC converters, DC-DC converters and LDOs.
l Various analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital-to-analog converters.
l Time-mode signal processing circuits, such as time-to-digital converters (TDCs) and digital-to-time converters (DTCs).
l High-speed series interface circuits.
l Low-voltage/low-power circuits for sensor applications.
l Analog and mixed-mode EDA tools.
l Survey and tutorial studies of advanced analog and mixed-mode integrated circuits.
