Nanotechnology has been hailed as the “next wave” to replace CMOS as the process of choice to make logic devices using technologies as diverse as carbon nanotube grids, polymer semiconductors and even “wetware” – ionic/electronic systems mimicking biological processes. In fact most of the nanotechnology applications will be complementary and even extend the life of CMOS devices in areas such as improved thermal conductivity, new interconnect structures and new active and passive devices. The presentation will illustrate this with real examples of enhanced thermal conductivity materials, printed electronics and ESD protection structures.
