Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Analog and mixed signal circuits are playing a critical role in a world today that seems to be dominated by digital electronics. It is vital to interface with the physical world through sensors, obviously with an analog output. Looking into the future, we are embracing an era where everything will be connected, and the world–machine interactions will become ubiquitous. This trend including various applications e.g. biomedical, environmental sensing, electric automotive, energy harvesting and 6G communication bring enormous opportunities and challenges to analog and mixed signal circuit design. In this context, this Special Issues calls for in-depth studies and advanced developments on analog and mixed signal circuit designs and applications including but not limited to:

  • Sensor interface circuits and systems;
  • Power management circuits and systems;
  • Analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters;
  • Bio-medical and health care circuits and systems;
  • IoT sensors systems and energy harvesting circuits;
  • Food and Environmental monitoring circuits and systems;
  • Design with emerging technologies such as flexible, thin-film devices.

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 2400 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.

A fire circuit breaker (FCB) is dedicated to emergency services that can cut off the flow of electricity to all circuits, except for circuits supplying installations and equipment, the functioning of which is necessary during a fire. Theoretical research shows that there are no comprehensive studies on the FCB systems. Therefore, the aim of this study is to assess the impact of the components used (activating, signalling and executive devices) on the functionality of the entire FCB system (signal transmission time, actuation time, signalling, operational safety and resistance to various environmental conditions). This study proposes a new test scheme to evaluate the functionality of the entire FCB system, not just their individual components, which are widely known and used by electricians. However, it is only by combining them into a system, taking into account the requirements for firefighting equipment used by firefighters, that a completely new product is created. The new test scheme was properly validated by conducting a series of tests on several systems, consisting of multiple components (activating, signalling and executive devices). The tests carried out confirmed the validity of the assumptions made for the test methods and demonstrated the strong influence of the components (actuators, signalling and execution devices) on the functionality of the entire FCB system.
