Special Issue Information
In recent years, the design of low-voltage and ultra-low power circuits has been of paramount importance. This is motivated by the power constraints and the advanced deep submicron technologies which require lower and lower supply voltages, less than 1V. Even lower supply voltage may be requested for low-power systems, especially those applied in biomedical implantable or wearable electronic devices, autonomous sensor nodes supplied with nonconventional energy sources, Internet of Things networks, and other similar applications.
One of the most challenging tasks for analogue and digital designers is to maintain the circuit performances by developing novel circuit structures capable of operating with a low supply voltage.
Moreover, the increasing demands for both low supply voltage and energy efficiency often have a detrimental effect on the robustness and the reliability of integrated circuits, especially analogue ones.
The topics to be covered in this Special Issue are as follows:
- Theory, design, and new applications of low-voltage, low-power circuits;
- Conventional and nonconventional low-voltage analog and digital design techniques;
- Supply and energy harvesting blocks;
- Implantable and wearable devices for biomedical monitoring applications;
- Low-voltage circuits for Internet of Things (IoT) applications;
- Low-voltage power-efficient analog-to-digital converters;
- Design techniques to achieve high robustness and reliability against the electromagnetic pollution.
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.
