Nanoscale technologies provide both challenges and opportunities. We show that the issues and potential solutions facing designers are technology independent and arise mainly from shrinking device sizes and an increase in the number of devices available. We explore how it is possible to use some of the devices that will be available to help ease design complexity as well as overcome process related challenges such as limited layout freedom, increased defect densities, timing constraints, and power dissipation.
