Interests: novel energy harvester; novel power management techniques and circuits; low-power sensor interfaces; low-power analog and mixed-signal circuits
The growing market of battery-operated portable electronic devices, wearable medical devices, and the wide application of the Internet of Things (IoT) in domestic life, the healthcare sector, manufacturing, and several other fields forced electronic circuit designers to become aware of energy efficiency and system management costs. These concerns are essential in modern electronics, allowing for lower device energy consumption and longer battery life or even proposed battery-less solutions.
The number of connected devices in IoT applications is expected to exceed 40 billion in 2025. Thus, it is vital to tackle the challenges involved in the design of ultra-low power solutions to ensure the feasibility of current and future systems, as well as to propose new mechanisms and energy extraction circuits that can complement or even replace the use of batteries. To achieve these goals, it is necessary to use special techniques to design low-power analog/digital integrated circuits.
For this Special Issue, authors are encouraged to submit their original research on the use of low-power integrated circuits to improve the energy efficiency of systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following fields:
- Novel energy harvesters;
- Novel power management techniques and circuits;
- Low-power sensor interfaces;
- Low-power analog and mixed-signal circuits.

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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
