This Special Issue will focus on the SiGe design of nonlinear integrated circuits. SiGe technology has today reached a reliability and performance that make it the preferred choice for realizing circuits at very high frequencies, up to the THz band. In this sense, great effort should be made in the coming years to fill the so-called THz gap and propose electronic solutions suitable for practical applications. Additionally, from an industrial and commercial point of view, several fields should take advantage of the use of SiGe technology. Developments in telecommunications, for instance, imaging applications or biomedical activities, are leading electronic systems to operate at even higher frequencies. Above 70–80 GHz, essential applications for modern society are now appearing in different fields, such as industrial, automotive, ultra-fast communications, medical and clinical sectors, security, and imaging.
Aspects related to the definition of new circuitry solutions at these frequencies, theoretical analysis or experimental verifications of SiGe technologies, MMICs design, CAD modeling and simulations, and characterization and test of nonlinear circuits and devices will be covered.
Potential authors are invited to submit original research articles and review papers on the design of high-frequency integrated nonlinear circuits in SiGe technology. Interesting topics include but are not limited to:
- Integrated communications systems and subsystems;
- Millimeter wave and THz imaging circuits;
- SiGe technology in medical applications;
- Systems on chip;
- Microwaves and millimeter wave innovative circuits;
- Characterization and modellng of SiGe devices and technologies.

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 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.
