    The Analog Journal celebrates its 20th Anniversary!

    With this issue, we celebrate our 20th Anniversary! We

    started our first issue back in 1991. The journal appeared

    quarterly for a couple of years then bi-monthly for a while

    and since 1997 it appears monthly and on-line since 1999.

    Our journal is the only publication devoted exclusively to

    analog Integrated circuits (ICs) and signal processing

    research. It is becoming the premiere publication in the

    fields of analog, radio frequency (RF) and mixed signal IC

    design and applications. Many of us call it the Analog

    Journal or the red and yellow! Indeed, the material we

    publish reflects a very significant portion of analog

    research conducted in industry, academia and research

    Labs worldwide.

    On behalf of the Editorial Board, I would like to thank

    our authors and reviewers who made the journal what it is

    today. Special thanks go to the Springer staff for their very

    dedicated work over the years with the journal or ALOG

    as they call it.

    Happy 20th Anniversary to ALOG! and Happy New

    Year 2011 to you, our readers! We look forward to hearing

    from you with any suggestions or feedback you may have

    so we can serve you even better.

    Mohammed Ismail is a Profes-sor and Founding Director of the

    Analog VLSI Lab at the Ohio

    State University, USA and of the

    RaMSiS Group at KTH, Sweden.

    He is also affiliated with the

    ElectroScience Lab at Ohio State.

    Currently, he conducts research

    on robust low power RF and mm-

    wave ICs for wireless, bio and

    multimedia applications with a

    focus on manufacturable low cost

    high volume CMOS solutions for

    mobile and wearable embedded

    devices. He served as a Corporate

    Consultant to over 30 companies and is a Co-Founder of Firstpass

    Technologies, Inc. a developer of RF and mixed signal IPs. He Co-

    founded ANACAD-Egypt (now part of Mentor Graphics). He advised

    the work of 49 Ph.D. students and of over 90 M.S. students. He authored

    or co-authored a dozen books and over 250 journal publications. He is the

    Founding Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Analog Integrated Circuits andSignal Processing, Springer and the Founder of the IEEE ICECS, theflagship Region 8 conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.

    He received the US Presidential Young Investigator Award, the Ohio

    State Lumley Research Award four times, in 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2007

    and the US Semiconductor Research Corporations Inventor Recogni-

    tion Award twice. He is a Fellow of IEEE.
