Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
Dr. Harjani received the National Science Foundation Research Initiation Award in 1991. He received a Best Paper Award at the 1987 IEEE/ACM Design Automation for his paper titled, “A Prototype Framework for Knowledge-Based Analog Circuit Synthesis”. This paper was further selected as one of the most significant papers presented over the last 24 years at the Design Automation Conference. His paper, “Analog Circuit Synthesis for Performance in OASYS” was selected for the “The Best of ICCAD–20 Years of Excellence in Computer Aided Design”, (New York: Kluwer, 2002). The “Best of” book consists of the best 42 papers of the past 20 ICCADs on their impact on research and applications. He received an Outstanding paper award at the 1998 GOMAC for “GaAs-Based Microsensor Systems”. His research group was the winner of the SRC Copper Design Challenge titled “RF Front-End Design with Copper Passive Components” in 2000 and the winner of the SRC SiGe challenge titled “20 GHz Wide Tuning Range Low Noise VCO and Monolithic CDR Circuit” in 2003. He is a co-author of the books, Design of Modulators for Oversampled Converters (New York: Kluwer, 1998), Design of High-Performance CMOS Voltage-Controlled Oscillators, (New York: Kluwer, 2002) and High-Linearity CMOS RF Frontend Circuits (Springer 2004). He was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems Part II, Analog and Digital Signal Processing from 1995 to 1997, and is a Guest Editor for the International Journal of High-Speed Electronics and Systems, Special issue on “High-Speed Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits” 2004 and a Guest Editor for the Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing, Special International Symposium on Circuits and Systems, 2004. He was the Chair of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society technical committee on Analog Signal Processing from 1999 to 2000 and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society for 2001–2002.
