Description

For the last 50 years, the performance of integrated circuits has continued to grow. However, this performance will soon reach its physical limit. What new ways will then be available to develop the next generation of even more powerful and up-to-date systems? This book introduces the principles of quantum computing, the use of nanotubes in molecular transistors and DNA computing. It suggests new fabrication methods for the 21st century and introduces new architecture models, ranging from the most conventional to the most radical. Using a chronological theme, it explains our unavoidable entry to the nanodevice world: from the 1948-era transistor to the modern microchip. It concludes by anticipating the changes in our daily lives: from the necessary investments to the impact on software and coding activities, nanocomputing systems implementation and IT employment trends.
