Special Issue Call for Papers:

Embedded electronic systems contain a combination of software and hardware, both analog and digital. Although simple systems can be implemented with a single, off the-shelf microcontroller, a digital signal processor or a conventional microprocessor and associated software, more complex systems that have critical requirements regarding aspects such as area, speed, and power consumption call for innovative design. Various target architectures can be considered for matching different requirements. Solutions may include dedicated processors and/or ASICs, or even multi-processor platforms, combined with dedicated analog and RF front ends. The design of such complex embedded systems and analog front ends encompasses a suite of different technologies, tools, and design styles. A complete design environment must consider system specification, partitioning among software, digital hardware and analog parts, and synthesis of software and hardware parts and interfaces.

As the penetration of internet-based services such as video streaming, broadband connections have become an increasingly indispensable element of modern life, so the demand for advanced network technologies is growing stronger than ever. The dynamic 5G technology is one such concept anticipated to make a significant mark over the coming years. Indeed, it has resulted in the evolution and advancement of several verticals such as 5G chipsets, 5G enterprises, 5G broadcast, and more.

Defined with faster speed, increased bandwidth, higher capacity and low latency issues, 5G is likely to contribute to the several technological breakthroughs in fields ranging from smartphones and IoT connected devices to smart cities and autonomous cars. An important consideration in the growth of this technology is the establishment of a robust 5G infrastructure. 5G chipsets are an integral part of this infrastructure, which is why several vendors across the technological domain are showing a strong commitment towards developing sophisticated chipset solutions. 5G chipsets refer to a set of electronic elements within integrated 5G circuits, which facilitate the transmission of 5G packets on IoT devices, smartphones, portable hotspots, and even mobile network-equipped notebook PCs.

6G will eventually replace 5G, but currently 6G is not a mature technology, and is instead in the early research phase. Mobile telecoms companies are much too focused on 5G to deal with 6G in any significant way at the moment, and for the near future.

In this context, this special issue offers a platform for researchers and practitioners worldwide to present their novel and innovative ideas on design methodologies for integrated 5G/6G technologies. We invite unpublished articles presenting interactive system models, conceptual designs, and technological advancements related to the theme of this special issue.
