It is well known that there is an increasing trend on the design of low-voltage low-power circuits due to the requirement of efficient portable electronic systems with long battery lifetime. For analog circuits, higher biasing current is needed to obtain the same performance with low supply voltages which, however, results in increasing the power consumption. On the other hand, lower biasing current restricts the dynamic range of the circuit, whereas with low supply voltages it is hard to keep all the transistors in saturation region. Thus, design techniques for low-voltage low-power operation are very important for analog circuit designers. In this Special Issue we deal with low-voltage low-power analog devices and their applications
