The development of low-voltage and low-power design techniques is observed since several decades, as system power constraints and advanced deeply-scaled CMOS technologies require lower and lower supply voltages. It is predicted that the supply voltage for high performance microprocessors will be decreased to 0.6 V in a near future. Even lower supply voltage may be requested for low-power systems, especially the ones applied in biomedical implantable or wearable electronic devices, autonomous sensor nodes supplied with non-conventional energy sources and other similar applications.
The requested parameters of low-voltage and low-power systems are often difficult to achieve with the use of traditional design techniques. Therefore, the circuit and system designers are seeking to develop novel architectural solutions capable to operate with low supply voltage while maintaining acceptable performances.
The main focus of this special issue is on the research challenges relating to the theory, design and applications of low voltage integrated circuits and systems. The topics to be covered are as follows:
• Theory, design and new applications of low-voltage, low-power circuits
• New trends in low-voltage analog circuit design
• Non-conventional low-voltage analog and digital design techniques
• Implantable and wearable devices for biomedical monitoring applications
• Low-voltage low-power sensor interfaces
• Low-voltage low-power Systems on Chip (SoC)
• Low-voltage circuits for Internet of Things (IoT) applications
