General Information

The aim of the Workshop on Advances in Analog Circuit Design (AACD) is to bring together a large group of people working at the frontiers of analog circuit design, to study and discuss possibilities and future developments.

The workshop lasts three days and runs yearly since 1992, covering every year covers three specific topics in the field on analog design (one topic per day). The latest editions were held in:

  • Edinburgh, Scotland, UK in 2018 (Analog Techniques for Power Constrained Applications, Sensors for Mobile Devices, Energy Efficient Amplifiers and Drivers).
  • Eindhoven, The Netherlands in 2017 (ADCs, Sensor Design for IoT, Sub-1 V and Advanced-Node Analog Circuit Design).
  • Villach, Austria in 2016 (Contnuous-Time ΣΔ Modulators for Transceivers, Automotive Electronics, Power Management).
  • Neuchatel, Switzerland in 2015 (Efficient Sensor Interfaces, Advanced Amplifiers, Low Power RF Systems).
  • Lisbon, Portugal in 2014 (Topics: High-Performance AD and DA Converters, IC Design in Scaled Technologies, Time-Domain Signal Processing).
  • Grenoble, France in 2013 (Topics: Frequency References, Power Management for SoC, Smart Wireless Interfaces).
  • Valkenburg, The Netherlands in 2012 (Topics: Nyquist A/D Converters, Capacitive Sensor Interfaces, Beyond Analog Circuit Design).
  • Leuven, Belgium in 2011 (Topics: Low Voltage Low Power Data Converters, Short Range Wireless Front-Ends, Power Management and DC-DC).
  • Graz, Austria in 2010 (Topics: Robust Design, Sigma-Delta Converters, RFID).
  • Lund, Sweden in 2009 (Topics: Smart Data Converters, Filters on Chip, Multimode Transmitters).
  • Pavia, Italy in 2008 (Topics: High-Speed Clock and Data Recovery, High-Performance Amplifiers, Power Management).
