SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Nanotechnology will play a key role in next-generation silicon, and may help extend CMOS scaling down into the single-digit nanometer range, according to researchers at a DesignCon technology forum here. But technologies like carbon nanotubes, nanowires and single-electron transistors still aren't ready for prime time, they noted.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Nanotechnology will play a key role in next-generation silicon, and may help extend CMOS scaling down into the single-digit nanometer range, according to researchers at a DesignCon technology forum here. But technologies like carbon nanotubes, nanowires and single-electron transistors still aren't ready for prime time, they noted. Nanotechnology isn't hype - it's here right now, panelists said. At the 90-nm node, gate lengths are 50 nm, which is "clearly nanotechnology by any definition," said George Bourianoff, Intel Corp.'s senior program manager for the strategic research group at Intel.
