Analog Circuit Design is based on the yearly Advances in Analog Circuit Design workshop. The aim of the workshop is to bring together designers of advanced analogue and RF circuits for the purpose of studying and discussing new possibilities and future developments in this field. Selected topics for AACD 2007 are: (1) Sensors, Actuators and Power Drivers for the Automotive and Industrial Environment (Tue 27 March) - Chaired by Herman Casier, AMI Semiconductor Fellow, Belgium; (2) Integrated PA's from Wireline to RF (Wed 28 March) - Chaired by Prof. Michiel Steyaert, Catholic University, Leuven; (3) Very High Frequency Front Ends (Thu 29 March) - Chaired by Prof. Arthur van Roermund, Eindhoven University of Technology.
