<ul><li><p>EDITORIAL</p><p>The Analog Journal celebrates its 20th Anniversary!</p><p>Mohammed Ismail</p><p>Published online: 17 November 2010</p><p> Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010</p><p>With this issue, we celebrate our 20th Anniversary! We</p><p>started our first issue back in 1991. The journal appeared</p><p>quarterly for a couple of years then bi-monthly for a while</p><p>and since 1997 it appears monthly and on-line since 1999.</p><p>Our journal is the only publication devoted exclusively to</p><p>analog Integrated circuits (ICs) and signal processing</p><p>research. It is becoming the premiere publication in the</p><p>fields of analog, radio frequency (RF) and mixed signal IC</p><p>design and applications. Many of us call it the Analog</p><p>Journal or the red and yellow! Indeed, the material we</p><p>publish reflects a very significant portion of analog</p><p>research conducted in industry, academia and research</p><p>Labs worldwide.</p><p>On behalf of the Editorial Board, I would like to thank</p><p>our authors and reviewers who made the journal what it is</p><p>today. Special thanks go to the Springer staff for their very</p><p>dedicated work over the years with the journal or ALOG</p><p>as they call it.</p><p>Happy 20th Anniversary to ALOG! and Happy New</p><p>Year 2011 to you, our readers! We look forward to hearing</p><p>from you with any suggestions or feedback you may have</p><p>so we can serve you even better.</p><p>Mohammed Ismail is a Profes-sor and Founding Director of the</p><p>Analog VLSI Lab at the Ohio</p><p>State University, USA and of the</p><p>RaMSiS Group at KTH, Sweden.</p><p>He is also affiliated with the</p><p>ElectroScience Lab at Ohio State.</p><p>Currently, he conducts research</p><p>on robust low power RF and mm-</p><p>wave ICs for wireless, bio and</p><p>multimedia applications with a</p><p>focus on manufacturable low cost</p><p>high volume CMOS solutions for</p><p>mobile and wearable embedded</p><p>devices. He served as a Corporate</p><p>Consultant to over 30 companies and is a Co-Founder of Firstpass</p><p>Technologies, Inc. a developer of RF and mixed signal IPs. He Co-</p><p>founded ANACAD-Egypt (now part of Mentor Graphics). He advised</p><p>the work of 49 Ph.D. students and of over 90 M.S. students. He authored</p><p>or co-authored a dozen books and over 250 journal publications. He is the</p><p>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.</p><p>He received the US Presidential Young Investigator Award, the Ohio</p><p>State Lumley Research Award four times, in 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2007</p><p>and the US Semiconductor Research Corporations Inventor Recogni-</p><p>tion Award twice.
