Embedded systems are now ubiquitous and ubiquitous computing is now getting embedded in our day-to-day lives. Such systems are cost and power sensitive. Various nanotechnologies will provide an excellent vehicle to reduce cost and power consumption, while still meeting performance constraints. Nanoscale device technologies, such as carbon nanotube transistors, nanowires, resonant-tunneling devices, quantum cellular automata, single electron transistors, tunneling phase logic, and a host of others, have made significant advances in the last few years. However, circuit and system design methodologies for these technologies are still in their infancy. Industrial roadmaps project that these emergent technologies will make inroads in the commercial market within a decade. Therefore, such design methodologies are necessary for precise design and fabrication of nanocircuits and nanoarchitectures.
