Special Issue "CMOS Image Sensors and Related Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: CMOS image sensors for industrial/space applications; hardware neural network (Neuromorphic) system development; analog and mixed-signal IC design; digital calibration techniques for analog circuit errors
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit your valuable research outcomes to this Special Issue, titled “CMOS Image Sensors and Related Applications”.
CMOS image sensor (CIS) technology has made dramatic improvements over the past few decades. The enormous contribution of many researchers and the ever-increasing demand for mobile applications such as smartphone, digital camera, and tablet computers have led to the great commercial success of CIS. Ongoing progress in CIS technology, including pixel and readout architectures, device, and circuit, allows its application to expand beyond capturing high-quality images. In addition to traditional, yet still important, CIS and its applications, a new CIS architecture and its implementation for emerging technologies, such as real-time image recognition for self-driving vehicle, imaging systems for artificial neural networks, computational bio-imaging, and so on, have become the focus of recent research.
The aim of this Special Issue is to share and publish high-quality peer-reviewed papers in the area of CIS technology and its applications. The editorial board invites researchers to contribute to the field of high-performance CIS technologies including novel CIS architectures and implementations, high-performance pixel-readout circuits, on-chip image generation and processing, and a new CIS dedicated to task-specific imaging systems. Topics of this issue include but are not limited to:
- CMOS image sensor architecture and circuit implementation;
- High-frame rate and/or low-power CMOS image sensors;
- Wide-dynamic range CMOS image sensors;
- Imaging systems employing state-of-the-art CMOS image sensors;
- High-performance pixel readout circuits including analog-to-digital converters.

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. Sensors 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.
