About Chips


Chips (ISSN 2674-0729) aims to provide an advanced forum for the science, technology and design of chips and their applications. Chips publishes full and original research articles, reviews, and communication. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the maximum length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Additionally, electronic files providing full details of the calculations and experimental procedures can be deposited as supplementary materials.


Designs of Chips:

  • Micro and nano-electronics;
  • Analog, digital, and mixed-signal domain;
  • Baseband, RF and microwave frequencies;
  • All levels of abstraction, from device or transistor level to system and architecture level;
  • Typical IC products such as microprocessors and microcontrollers, memories, ASICs, FPGAs, SOCs (system-on-chips) and NOCs (network-on-chips);
  • All scales of integration, from small (SSI) to giga scale (GSI), passing through MSI, VLSI, and ULSI;      
  • Integrated optoelectronics and photonics
  • Design of integrated flexible electronics;
  • Cry-CMOS.

Chip production:

  • Manufacturing (fabrication and packaging) of chips;
  • Testing and evaluating of chips;
  • Materials for chips.


  • Environmental issues;
  • Automotive;
  • Power management;
  • Energy harvesting;
  • Consumer electronics;
  • Information and computing;
  • Communication networks;
  • IoT (Internet of Things);
  • Artificial intelligence;
  • Sensors;
  • Cyberphysical systems;
  • Quantum computing;
  • Biological, chemical, medical applications (lab-on-a-chip, organ-, body-, blood-, and disease-on-a-chip, protein chip, DNA chip, cell chip, bio-MEMS, micro/nano-mechanics, micro/nano-fluidics, high-throughput screening technology, medical science, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, medical diagnostics).

MDPI Publication Ethics Statement

MDPI is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). MDPI takes the responsibility to enforce a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies and standards to ensure to add high quality scientific works to the field of scholarly publication. Unfortunately, cases of plagiarism, data falsification, inappropriate authorship credit, and the like, do arise. MDPI takes such publishing ethics issues very seriously and our editors are trained to proceed in such cases with a zero tolerance policy. To verify the originality of content submitted to our journals, we use iThenticate to check submissions against previous publications.
