    Filtering circuits, the most ubiquitous of electronic signal-processing functions, made for spirited discussions as analog-to-digital technology solutions unfolded. Bedrich Hosticka's 1978 paper on a MOS switched-capacitor filter marked the beginning of the dominance of switched-capacitor techniques for integrated audio-band filtering. In the ISSCC 40th Anniversary Commemorative Supplement in 1993... View full abstract»

    The paper was a result of my PhD thesis research from 1974 to 1977. When I started my work at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the University of California, Berkeley, nobody believed that you could realize analog integrated circuits using MOS technologies (actually, all analog integrated circuits realized at that time were using bipolar technologies). It was the Dep... View full abstract»

  • A JSSC classic paper: The Gilbert cell, the linear mixer with gain, in CMOS or bipolar

    Publication Year: 2003, Page(s): 6
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1505 KB)

    The Gilbert cell, initially designed with bipolar transistors to operate as a precision multiplier, is widely used in modern communication systems as a mixer and frequency translator. The Gilbert cell offers advantages such as high conversion gain and high port-to-port isolation. Its principle of operation is technology independent and can be realized in bipolar or CMOS processes. Because of their... View full abstract»

    In the autumn of 1954, I met my lifetime companion and partner, whom we'll identify just by the initials “BJT,” at a research lab in the south of England. After a decade of deepening familiarity and joyous discovery together, we moved to Oregon, to continue our adventures at Tektronix. This company, dedicated to fashioning the world's finest oscilloscopes, took the unusual step in 19... View full abstract»

    The SSCS AdCom met 26 August 2002 in San Francisco, California. Much of the action supported chapters and conferences. Applications for subsidies for 19 chapters, totaling $16,000 were approved. Loans were approved for fully sponsored Society meetings, the Custom Integrated Circuits Conference in the fall, the Symposium on VLSI Circuits in June, and the Solid-State Circuits Technology Committee Wo...

    More choices put you in charge. In 2003 your membership can be Web based. More than half of IEEE member renewals now occur online and their renewal reminders went out in October by email, not regular post. SSCS membership now includes only the online access to the JSSC, and the Society's first choice for newsletter delivery is a linked email table of contents as well. (See “Your Last Copy&#...
