Chapter 1

The nanomorphic cell: atomic-level limits of computing

Abstracts

The application space for severely scaled microsystems is rapidly expanding; especially for the biological and medical sciences. The focus of the text is on the feasibility of realizing micron-scale, autonomous systems using the best projected technologies for electronic technologies. A “nanomorphic cell” whose dimensions are in the micron range is introduced in Chapter 1 and the various subsystems that comprise the cell are described, for example, sensors and actuators, communications systems, memory and logic units, and energy sources. The physical scaling of each of these subsystems is addressed in the ensuing chapters and their integration is considered in the ...
