 Book Description



Every research and development must be started from a state-of-the-art review, and microelectronics is not an exception. The review is one of the most labor- and time-consuming parts of research. It is strongly necessary to take into account and reflect in the review the current stage of development, including existing technologies, CAD tools and devices. Many PhD students and researchers working in the same area are doing the same type of work. A researcher must find appropriate references, to read it and make a critical analysis to determine what was done well before and what was not solved till now, and determine and formulate his future scientific aim and objectives. The professionally made state-of-the art must take into account not only open access books, articles and conference papers available online for free, but also traditional monographs and journal articles, which are available only off-line and in print (paper) format.

After very successful publication of four volumes of our popular ‘Advances in Sensors: Reviews’ Book Series (2012-2016), it was decided to start publication of new Book Series on ‘Advances in Microelectronics: Reviews’ along with the other Book Series with advances and reviews, which are coming soon.

The 1st volume of new Book Series contains 19 chapters written by 72 authors from academia and industry from 16 countries: Canada, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Iran, Italia, Japan, Malaysia, Norway, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, United Arab Emirates, UK, and USA.

This book ensures that our readers will stay at the cutting edge of the field and get the right and effective start point and road map for the further researches and developments. By this way, they will be able to save more time for productive research activity and eliminate routine work.
