This special issue will focus on circuit techniques for low power embedded memories. Nearly all embedded applications require on-chip memory, but the requirements for these embedded memories vary significantly across applications. For many embedded designs, reducing power is a key design concern. A variety of circuit approaches have emerged to meet low power needs for memory blocks.Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- reducing Vmin for low power memory
- circuits and architectures for embedded DRAM
- alternative bit cells for low power SRAM
- sub-threshold memory arrays
- low power non volatile memory technologies and circuits
- circuit assist features for low power
- charge recycling in RAMs
- low power periphery (sense amplifiers, decoders, etc.)
- effects of variability on low power RAM

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.
