The Analog VLSI Lab was founded by Prof. Mohammed Ismail at The Ohio State University.

Mohammed Ismail is a prolific author and entrepreneur in system-on-chip design and test and nanotechnology, spent over 30 years in academia and industry in the US and Europe. He is one of the world pioneers in the field of CMOS design of analog, mixed- signal and RF integrated circuits and has graduated over 55 Ph.D. students and more than 100 MS students, thesis option.

His current research focuses on CMOS analog, RF and mm-wave Integrated circuits, Systems-on-Chip (SoCs) for the Internet of Things (IoTs), Chipsets for 5G/6G wireless communications, automotive electronics, autonomous vehicles and RF energy harvesting solutions for wireless charging. He cofounded several starts ups, including Spirea AB in Stockholm, Sweden, Firstpass Technologies and Micrys Corp in Columbus, OH and ANACAD in Cairo, Egypt (now part of Siemens) and has led a research team that developed the first CMOS combo 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi Radio chip. More recently He developed with his colleagues the world first self-powered wearable CMOS device that predicts the onset of a heart attack using advanced machine learning algorithms. He authored or co-authored 23 books and over 200 journal publications, 300 conference papers and has 17 US patents granted and several pending.
