Silicon Earth: Introduction to Microelectronics and Nanotechnology, Second Edition

John D. Cressler


We are within the heart of the main life-changing technological revolution the Earth has ever identified. In little greater than sixty five years, an eye-blink in human heritage, a unmarried technological invention has introduced the proverbial thousand ships, generating the main sweeping and pervasive set of alterations ever to clean over humankind; alterations which are reshaping the very center of human life, on a world scale, at a relentlessly accelerating speed. And we're simply on the very beginning.

Silicon Earth: creation to Microelectronics and Nanotechnology introduces readers with very little technical historical past to the marvels of microelectronics and nanotechnology, utilizing easy language, an intuitive process, minimum math, and many images. the overall clinical and engineering underpinnings of microelectronics and nanotechnology are defined, in addition to how this new technological revolution is remodeling a large array of interdisciplinary fields, and civilization as an entire. specified "widget deconstruction" chapters tackle the internal workings of ubiquitous micro/nano-enabled items of know-how, resembling smartphones, flash drives, and electronic cameras.

Completely up to date and upgraded to complete colour, the Second Edition:

  • Includes new fabric at the layout of digital structures, the way forward for electronics, and the societal impression of micro/nanotechnology
  • Provides new widget deconstructions of state-of-the-art tech contraptions just like the GPS-enabled smartwatch
  • Adds end-of-chapter research questions and enormous quantities of latest colour photos

Silicon Earth: advent to Microelectronics and Nanotechnology, moment version

is a pick-up-and-read-cover-to-cover e-book for these fascinated about the micro/nanoworld, in addition to a classroom-tested, student-and-professor-approved textual content perfect for an undergraduate-level collage path. Lecture slides, homework examples, a deconstruction venture, and dialogue threads can be found through an author-maintained website.
