IEEE Micro is a broad-based practitioner-oriented magazine of the IEEE Computer Society targeting small system and semiconductor chip professionals, including electronic engineers, designers, architects, developers, process improvement experts, testers, quality engineers, and project managers. It features peer-reviewed articles, special focus sections, regular columns by prominent authors, technology news, experience reports, and opinion pieces. The topics it covers include integrated circuit processes and practices, project management, development tools and infrastructure, as well as chip design and architecture, empirical evaluations of small system and IC technologies and techniques, human and social aspects of system development. In addition, IEEE Micro regularly contains columns devoted to legal developments relating to software and electronic systems (Micro Law), to standardization (Micro Standards), and to economics issues affecting the electronics industry (Micro Economics).
