Deep-sub-voltage nanoelectronics are integrated circuits (ICs) operating near theoretical limit (fundamental, technological, design methodological, architectural, algorithmic) on energy consumption per 1 bit processing. New classes of applications such as wireless sensor networks or microsystems have dramatically different requirements from traditional nanoelectronics (logically irreversible manipulation of information) where performance (i.e., frequency) is primary metric of interest. For new devices, energy per instruction may be a more sensible metric.
Additional recommended knowledge
The tiny autonomous devices (smartdust or autonomous MEMS as examples) on the basis of deep-sub-voltage nanoelectronics will require much increase of capacity density as in capacitors the energy depends quadratically from voltage .
The important case of fundamental ultimate limit for logic operation is the reversible computing.
