Some of the recent e-books are listed below:

  • Selected Topics in RF, Analog and Mixed-Signal Circuits and Systems
  • Circuits and Systems for the Internet of Things
  • Selected Topics in Power, RF, and Mixed-Signal ICs
  • Power Management for the Internet of Everything
  • Enabling Technologies for the Internet of Things: Wireless Circuits, Systems, and Networks
  • Low Power Circuit Design Using Advanced CMOS Technology
  • Circuits and Systems for Biomedical Applications
  • Circuits and Systems for Wearable Technologies
  • From Artificial Intelligence to Brain Intelligence
  • Heterogeneous Cyber-Physical Systems of Systems 
  • Selected Topics in Biomedical Circuits and Systems
  • Advanced Tutorial on Analog Circuit Design
  • Advanced Tutorial on Radio Frequency Circuit Design
