In this paper we examine the opportunities brought about by recent progress in electronic nanotechnology and describe the methods needed to harness them for building a new computer architecture. In this process we decompose some traditional abstractions, such as the transistor, into fine-grain pieces, such as signal restoration and input-output isolation. We also show how we can forgo the extreme reliability of CMOS circuits for low-cost chemical self-assembly at the expense of large… CONTINUE READING
