Recent advancements in sensor and integrated circuit technologies, as well as wireless networking, have facilitated widespread use of smart wireless sensor instruments in various applications encompassing health science, clinical and experimental medicine, and environmental monitoring. New and promising developments in the areas of both transducer design and CMOS process technology have enabled rapid development in low-power smart sensor technology and wireless telemetry. With continuous scaling of CMOS process technologies, a high degree of miniaturization, of many classic measurement techniques, has been achieved, which has led to the realization of complex analytical systems, namely lab-on-a-chip. This new class of monolithic sensors has the potential for a broad range of applications, including biology, medicine, environment monitoring, and homeland security. The purpose of this Special Issue is to address on-going research activities in the design of transducers and the associated electronics, including wireless telemetry required for achieving smart wireless monolithic sensor instruments.
Original contributions are solicited from the following non-exhaustive list of topics:
- Low-power circuit design methodologies
- Transducer design for monolithic sensors
- Energy harvesting techniques for battery-less sensor instruments
- Power and energy management circuits and systems
- Circuits techniques for energy-efficient wireless communication
- Wireless smart sensor architecture and system-level design methodologies
- Low-power, intelligent and adaptive sensor signal processing for wireless sensors
