Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The MIXDES conference series began in Dębe, near Warsaw, in 1994 and has been since organised yearly in major Polish cities. Until this year, the conference has been held annually without any interruption, and gathers participants from more than 25 countries. The MIXDES conference is one of the largest in this field in Central Europe, encompassing interdisciplinary research in design, modelling, simulation, testing, and manufacturing in various areas, such as micro- and nanoelectronics, semiconductors, sensors, actuators, biomedical applications, and power devices. The main organiser of all these conferences is the Department of Microelectronics and Computer Science of the Technical University of Lodz, Poland, headed by Prof. Andrzej Napieralski.

This Special Issue presents extended versions of selected papers from MIXDES 2020—27th International Conference on Mixed Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems that was held online in June 2020.

The issue topics include:

- Integrated Circuits and Microsystems

- Thermal Issues in Microelectronics

- Microelectronics Technology and Packaging

- Testing and Reliability

- Power Electronics

- Signal Processing

- Embedded Systems

- Medical Applications of Microsystems
