Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Advances in CMOS technology, communication, and low power circuit design have spurred the development of wearable biomedical devices and electrically active implants, leading to miniaturized and highly integrated systems for continuous monitoring of physiological parameters. In the health and fitness market, devices monitor the rehabilitation progress, quantify personal body condition, or map activity. In such applications, it is essential that systems are ultra-low-power, miniaturized, and unobtrusive.

It is the goal of this Special Issue to report the latest developments of circuits and systems which drive novel sensing concepts and lead to ever more seamless integration of the electronic system with the body. Examples include capacitive non-contact sensing of biopotentials, devices or interface circuits for wearable biomagnetic sensors, and highly integrated neural interfaces. Essential supporting circuits are also within the scope of this SI, e.g., CMOS power harvesting systems demonstrated with a sensing device, edge processing of bioelectric signals, or dedicated low-power input amplifiers.

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 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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1500 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.
