Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the design of circuits for automotive applications has been of paramount importance. There are typically hundreds of electronic components found within newly developed vehicles. Various examples include several sensors with dedicated conditioning circuits,  complex systems like GPS navigation systems, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), entertainment systems, circuits for the motion control of the actuators, and so on.

The large amount of electronics creates an array of challenges in their development, from communication issues (wiring connectivity) to power distribution and hybrid drives, embedded and mixed signal modeling, simulating and prototyping (with a special focus on functionality, yield, and reliability), and EMI compatibility design.

The topics to be covered in this Special Issue are as follows:

  • The theory and design of signal conditioning mixed circuits for automotive sensors, including amplifiers, ADCs and DACs, filters, and RF circuits.
  • The theory and design of motor driving systems, including low-voltage motors and actuators.
  • Modeling, simulations, and design techniques to achieve highly robust functionality, yield, and reliability.
  • Modeling, simulations, and design techniques for EMI compatibility design.

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. 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.
