Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Internet of Things is expected to be the next-generation network connecting people to people (P2P), people to machine (P2M), and machine to machine (M2M), and will be the “network of the networks” that incorporates a diversity of functionalities and technologies in support of new applications and services in a “smart” world.

Energy efficiency and miniaturization are the two most critical technical challenges for the hardware implementation of microelectronic systems enabling Internet of Things. Low-power smart systems on a chip are the key enabling solutions.

This Special Issue is aimed at presenting the latest advances and future challenges in low-power system-on-chip designs and implementations for communication, sensing, processing, actuation, energy harvesting and management, enabling Internet of Things.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
