  • Covers state-of-the-art technologies, including carbon nanotube interconnections, nanoimprint lithography, polymer-based wires, discotic liquid crystals, and through-chip connections
  • Considers the ultimate physical limits of nanocomputation
  • Summary

    It is becoming increasingly clear that the two-dimensional layout of devices on computer chips hinders the development of high-performance computer systems. Three-dimensional structures will be needed to provide the performance required to implement computationally intensive tasks.

    3-D Nanoelectronic Computer Architecture and Implementation reviews the state of the art in nanoelectronic device design and fabrication and discusses the architectural aspects of 3-D designs, including the possible use of molecular wiring and carbon nanotube interconnections. This is a valuable reference for those involved in the design and development of nanoelectronic devices and technology.
