22 Nanotechnology for Consumer Electronics

  title={22 Nanotechnology for Consumer Electronics},
  author={Hannah M. Gramling and Michail E. Kiziroglou and Eric M. Yeatman},
Advances in the cost and physical scale of computing power have enabled devices geared at a consumer market to carry considerable onboard processing capability. In turn, low cost has spurred mass adoption of handheld and smaller computing products. Many devices that started as box-like, single purpose devices – like landline phones, stereos, and televisions – have since evolved into lightweight, low-profile, and cross-functional products. We have already entered an age of ubiquitous smart…
