Special Issue "Microwave Integrated Circuits Design and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2020).
Interests: Analog/RFIC, Microwave Electronics, CMOS, Device, Antennas
Traditionally, the phased array system has been widely applied in military fields, owing to its adaptive and agile beam controllability for multiple target tracking capability. With the advancement of electronic circuit technology, the phased array antenna, which is the smart antenna in a broader sense, has found global attention in commercial sensing and communications, such as autonomous vehicle and 5G mobile applications, which require wideband technology. In order to satisfy the stringent technological requirements in developing the cost-effective, compact, and wideband phased array system for vehicle and 5G mobile applications, significant efforts have been invested in developing new signal processing schemes and wideband analog/RF technologies.
This Special Issue focuses on the analysis, design, and implementation of the analog/RF; mixed circuit blocks; and cost-effective signal processing schemes applicable for the compact wideband phased array system. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Analog/RF IC technologies for wideband operation
- Energy efficient transceiver design and architecture
- Wideband Tx/Rx module for agile phase shifting
- True time delay (TTD) phase shifters
- Cost-effective signal processing scheme for the wideband phased array system
- Various analog and digital beamforming technologies.

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
