Nanomaterials and Morphware
Volume 4, Issue 2

Blaise Mouttet, Landon IP

While the paradigm in electronics for the past 40 years has been driven by Moore’s law, making smaller circuits is not the only way to increase the functionality and performance of electronics devices. Reconfigurable hardware, otherwise known as “morphware,” offers the possibility of providing more function with fewer circuit components when size reduction of circuit features becomes cost prohibitive. Nanostructured and molecular materials have begun to be applied to morphware allowing for electronic hardware with the flexibility and programmability of software. This article looks beyond the advantages of nanomaterials in shrinking circuit size toward applications of nanomaterials in which the impact of morphware is dominant.
