Call for Papers for the Special Issue: Insight - Electronic


The Introduction of the Special Issue

In recent years, the design of low voltage and low power CMOS circuits has been of paramount importance in the area of VLSI design. This is motivated by the power constraints and the advanced deep submicron CMOS technologies which require low supply voltages often less than 1 Volt. Many VLSI applications such as biomedical implantable or wearable electronic devices, autonomous sensor nodes supplied with nonconventional energy, satellite communication equipment, Internet of Things networks and other similar applications requires circuits operating from very low supply voltage and having ultra-low power consumption.

One of the most challenging tasks for VLSI designers is to maintain the circuit performances by developing novel circuit structures capable of operating with a low supply voltage. Also, it is often difficult to achieve high performances at low supply voltage using traditional design techniques. Therefore designers are seeking to develop novel architectural solutions and find new design techniques. Moreover, the increasing demands for both low supply voltage and efficient circuits often have a detrimental effect on the robustness and the reliability of VLSI circuits.
