Manuscript Submission Information

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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Improving semiconductor equipment and components is an important goal of semiconductor manufacture. Especially during the deposition process, the temperature of the wafer must be precisely controlled to form a uniform thin film. In the conventional plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) chuck, heating rate, and temperature uniformity are limited by the spiral pattern and volume of the heating element. To overcome the structural limitation of the heating element of conventional chuck, we tried to develop the planar heating chuck (PHC), a 6-inch PECVD chuck with a planar heating element based on NiCr thin film that would be a good candidate for rapidly and uniformly heating. The time for the temperature elevation from room temperature to 330 °C was 398 s. In a performance evaluation, the fabricated PHC successfully completed a SiO2 PECVD process. Full article

The purpose of this study is to highlight approaches for predicting a system’s future behavior and estimating its remaining useful life (RUL) to define an effective maintenance schedule. Indeed, prognosis and health management (PHM) strategies for renewable energy systems, with a focus on wind turbine generators, are given, as well as publications published in the recent ten years. As a result, some prognostic applications in renewable energy systems are emphasized, such as power converter devices, battery capacity degradation, and damage in wind turbine high-speed shaft bearings. The paper not only focuses on the methodologies adopted during the early research in the area of PHM but also investigates more current challenges and trends in this domain Full article
