Venture Panel Debates Opportunities

Abstract:
Addressing the question of whether nanotechnology would create a breakthrough that could change the playing field, Stanfordís Plummer sounded a pessimistic note. ďThe CMOS switching element has been highly refined,Ē he said. ďThere is nothing on the horizon right now that could replace it. I donít mean that we donít know enough about any of the nano-scale devices to be sure they could succeed. Itís that we now know enough about them to prove that they cannot be better than CMOS switches. If nanotechnology is going to create a breakthrough, it will require a complete reorganization of the way we create systems, in order to base them on something other than the logic switch.Ē
