His research interests are in the design of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, and especially in analog and mixed-signal CAD tools and design automation (modeling, simulation and symbolic analysis, analog synthesis, analog layout generation, analog and mixed-signal testing). He is coordinator or partner of several (industrial) research projects in this area. He has authored or coauthored one book and more than 100 papers in edited books, international journals and conference proceedings. He regularly is a member of the Program Committees of international conferences (ICCAD, ED&TC...), he has served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, part I, and is a member of the Editorial Board of the Kluwer international journal on Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing. He is a member of IEEE and ACM.
Georges Gielen is heading the Analog and Mixed-Signal Design Methodologies subgroup of the ESAT-MICAS division. Together with Prof. Willy Sansen research is conducted on design methodologies and the development of related algorithms and computer-aided design (CAD) tools to be used by analog and mixed analog-digital designers. The goals of these activities are : 1) to increase the productivity of analog designers (shorten the time to market), and 2) to improve the quality and optimality of analog and mixed-signal IC designs (e.g. power reduction, but also avoiding expensive redesign runs).
The activities can be divided in four research themes :

This research has up till now resulted in many successful academic software tools that have significantly advanced the state of the art in the field of analog and mixed-signal CAD. Many of these tools are being distributed to the outside world (on an as is basis).
