This chapter concerns the design, development, and simulation of nanoprocessor systems integrated on the molecular scale. It surveys ongoing research and development on nanoprocessor architectures and discusses challenges in the implementation of such systems. System simulation is used to identify some advantages, issues, and trade-offs in potential(More)
—Designs and simulation results are given for two small, special-purpose nanoelectronic circuits. The area of special-purpose nanoelectronics has not been given much consideration previously, though much effort has been devoted to the development of general-purpose nanoelectronic systems, i.e., nanocomputers. This paper demonstrates via simulation that the(More)
Simulations were performed to assess the prospective performance of a 16 Kbit nanowire-based electronic nanomemory system. Commercial off-the-shelf microcomputer system modeling software was applied to evaluate the operation of an ultra-dense storage array. This array consists of demonstrated experimental non-volatile nanowire diode switches, plus(More)
