Special Issue on Design and Validation of Advanced Quantum Computing
Día de Entrega: 2022-06-30

Dear Colleagues, Quantum computation is a rapidly developing field and forward leaps forward have been accomplished during recent years. Quantum calculation is evolving from an emerging topic in science into an established field in science and design. With the expanding size of quantum processors, sub-modules that comprise the processor equipment will become too large to precisely reproduce on an old-style PC. Thus, in the near future each new crude plan and boundary decision will require tedious coordination between planning, manufacturing, and test approval. Here, we can show how we can plan and test the exhibition of cutting-edge quantum equipment by utilizing existing quantum PCs. Zeroing in on superconducting transmon processors at the noticeable equipment stage, we can calculate the static and dynamic properties of individual and coupled transmons. We can show how the energy spectra of transmons can be acquired by variational cross-breed, quantum, old-style calculations that are appropriate for close term loud quantum PCs. Furthermore, single-and two-qubit gate simulations are elucidated by means of Suzuki–Trotter decomposition. The strategies clear a promising way towards planning competitor quantum processors when the requirements for ascertaining sub-module properties surpass the abilities of old-style registering assets. In this SI, editors encourage topics related to hypothetical and fundamental research on the potential and restrictions of quantum innovation, quantum design, and validation, and the investigation of how to accomplish a new advance quantum design.

Special Issue on Computer-Aided Design for Integrated Circuits and Systems
Día de Entrega: 2023-01-31

Dear Colleagues, Currently, we are witnessing a rapid development of semiconductor technology. As a result of the transition from microelectronics to nanoelectronics, new families of VLSI chips have appeared. The modern integrated circuits and systems consist of billions and billions of semiconductor transistors. Now, a single chip is enough to implement very complex digital and mixed digital-analog systems. The stiff competition between the manufacturers of integrated circuits and VLSI systems guarantees that only the best products come to the market. The enormous complexity of modern circuits and systems requires the use of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools that automate the different stages of the design flow. Unfortunately, modern CAD tools cannot effectively use all the potential opportunities provided by current integrated circuits. As before, many problems related to the design process still require active human intervention. Therefore, there is an obvious need to improve the theory and practice in circuit design automation in order to provide solutions to these problems. To sum up, the ever-increasing complexity of current and future industrial projects requires the development of efficient CAD tools that facilitate the implementation of complex integrated circuits and systems. The aim of this Special Issue is to present novel practical and theoretical approaches related to the CAD of integrated circuits and systems. In particular, methodologies, tools, algorithms, and architectures that allow improving the efficiency of integrated circuits and systems in terms of performance, area occupancy, or power consumption are welcome. Topics of interest of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: · Theory of Computer-Aided Design; · Design methods for reliable and high-efficient (in speed, power consumption or area) integrated circuits and systems; · Formal methods for System-Level Design; · Energy-efficient integrated circuits and systems; · Design flow for ASICs and programmable devices (FPGAs and CPLDs); · Synthesis of synchronous/asynchronous digital systems; · Benchmarking in circuit design automation; · Design for testability; · Design, implementation, and verification of Finite State Machines; · Packing and technology mapping; · Verification and simulation of digital integrated circuits and systems; · HW/SW co-design; · · Design exploration; · CAD for embedded systems; · CAD for Cyber-Physical Systems; · CAD for networking systems; · Reconfigurable computing.

Submission deadline: 2023-01-31 Dear Colleagues, Display technologies have become integral parts of our everyday lives. Their applications cover from smartphones, televisions, cars, and watches to emergent augmented reality and virtual reality. Mini-LED, OLED and Micro-LED are the three next-generation display technologies that have escalated from the research and development phase and have now materialized into commercial products. Despite their similarity in name, they are actually quite different technologically and backed by different display manufacturers. Several technological and scientific efforts have continuously been made to provide better display products. These three technologies have revolutionized the display world, and each one has different advantages and disadvantages in terms of contrast ratio, resolution density, color gamut, viewing angle, power consumption and the asking price. This Special Issue is in the scope of optoelectronics and flexible electronics and it welcomes theoretical and experimental studies related to the emerging Mini-LED, OLED and Micro-LED display technologies and highlight the current status of this emissive displays. The capability of these technologies to realize monolithic and heterogeneous devices and their integration in transparent/flexible support to be used in “see-through” applications will be addressed. This issue also covers the light generation mechanisms based on the structure–property relationships and on the size-dependent power efficiency. This Special Issue will also deal with more general aspects such as the synthesis of new materials, the engineering of new device architectures and realization, the photophysical and photoelectric characteristics. Submitted manuscripts should address one or more of the following themes, although other relevant topics will also be considered: The path for OLED in displays; Thin film OLED encapsulation; Efficient material based OLED development; Light extraction; Micro-LED array and growth techniques; Micro-LED arrays on flexible substrates; Color conversion techniques; GaN LED monolithic integration for lighting and displays; Internal Quantum Efficiency of µ-led device; Mini‐LED full-color displays; Mini-LED and µ-LED displays pixel circuit design; Next generation display technologies.
