Special Issue "Electromagnetic Interference and Compatibility"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2020).
Interests: electrical engineering; EMC; microelectronics; Internet of Things; ultra-low voltage (ULV) integrated circuits; ultra-low power (ULP) integrated circuits; data converters
Emerging Internet of Things (IoT), smart grid, and transport electrification applications, along with the advances of semiconductor technology, which enables faster switching devices for highly efficient power conversion, are bringing about new EMC challenges that need to be addressed through the whole design flow of electric and electronic systems, starting from the highest levels of abstraction down to the physical level.
The coexistence of ultra-low voltage IoT nodes and safety-critical sensors close to power converters and drives in smart grids and electric vehicles, in particular, are raising new EMC concerns which demand novel concepts and methodologies in EMC modeling, design, simulation, optimization, and measurement, both at the system- and at the integrated circuit-level. Moreover, a strong multidisciplinary approach is currently needed to gain insight into increasingly complex phenomena and interference scenarios.
On the other hand, emerging Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques provide new tools to EMC designers, whose potential is still to be explored.
In this Special Issue, contributions addressing electromagnetic compatibility and interference topics in the broadest sense, including but not limited to IC- and system-level immunity and susceptibility issues of either information and communication technology (ICT) and power electronic systems, either in emerging IoT, smart grid, electric vehicles applications or in more traditional systems, EMC-oriented simulation and measurement techniques, and EMC applications of ML and AI, are welcome and encouraged.

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 monthly 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 1500 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.
