Analog CMOS from 5 micrometer to 5 nanometer

 Sansen, W., "1.3 Analog CMOS from 5 micrometer to 5 nanometer," ISSCC 2015 IEEE International , vol., no., pp.1,6, 22-26 Feb. 2015 doi: 10.1109/ISSCC.2015.7062848 
Abstract: In our future, as usual, analog designers will continue to expand their expertise and knowledge in response to changing needs. While devices will change their nature and operate at higher and higher frequencies, their I-V characteristics will remain similar. In the near term, increased speed of MOS circuits, will be reached by operating deeper in weak inversion. Offset and 1/f noise will continue to play a critical role. Thus, in general, it seems that analog expertise is insensitive to technology change.

QUCS: Project of the Week, June 1, 2015

 The Qucs is one of the featured projects for the week (June 1, 2015), which appear on the front page of SourceForge.net:

 Qucs is a circuit simulator with a graphical user interface. The software aims to support all kinds of circuit simulation types such as, e.g. DC, AC, S-parameter, Transient, Noise, and Harmonic Balance analysis. Pure digital simulations are also supported.
