Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ultra-low-power (ULP) electronics are a key enabler for many technological advances today, including smart homes, smart cities, smart agriculture, and medical devices to name a few. In particular, ULP electronics are vital for heavily resource-constrained systems, such as wearable electronics and implantable devices.

The advances in low-power designs, such as those of devices, circuits, architectures, and systems, have driven improvements. However, breakthroughs bridging the ideas from multiple areas are also often necessary to reach the target performance goals with limited power budgets. These breakthroughs can be especially impactful when they use information from different fields to adapt to the changing conditions and the characteristics of each application.

This Special Issue invites contributions in adaptive ULP electronics for sensing, actuating, amplification, signal conditioning, and data converters, which incorporate insights from multiple fields. For instance, circuits that take advantage of the temporal and spectral properties of signals, such as burstiness, bandwidth limitations, and predictability, are especially welcomed.  Contributions with applications to wearable and medical devices are also encouraged. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- Adaptive analog filters, amplifiers, and voltage regulators;

- Adaptive biasing amplifiers;

- Adaptive analog techniques for signal processing;

- Novel adaptive data converter architectures;

- Level-crossing analog-to-digital converters and continuous time-signal processing;

- Machine Learning and Deep Learning techniques for adaptive circuit design and calibration;

- Domain-specific low-power analog circuit synthesis;

- Bioinspired adaptive circuit architectures;

- Biomedical applications of ULP adaptive electronics;

- Adaptive sensors and actuators.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 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.
