We are within the middle of the main life-changing technological revolution the Earth has ever identified. In little greater than sixty five years, an eye-blink in human background, a unmarried technological invention has introduced the proverbial thousand ships, generating the main sweeping and pervasive set of alterations ever to scrub over humankind; adjustments which are reshaping the very center of human life, on an international 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 common language, an intuitive process, minimum math, and many photographs. the overall clinical and engineering underpinnings of microelectronics and nanotechnology are defined, in addition to how this new technological revolution is remodeling a vast array of interdisciplinary fields, and civilization as an entire. distinctive "widget deconstruction" chapters handle the internal workings of ubiquitous micro/nano-enabled items of know-how, akin to 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 influence of micro/nanotechnology
- Provides new widget deconstructions of state of the art tech instruments just like the GPS-enabled smartwatch
- Adds end-of-chapter research questions and countless numbers of latest colour photos
