Each year, consumers expect their electronic devices to become smaller and more powerful while also featuring exciting new capabilities. While advances in silicon have made this trend possible, it is now clear that silicon can’t keep up with this rate of innovation. That is why leaders such as Nantero, who has developed a new generation of super-fast memory, are turning to new materials such as Nano C’s carbon nanotubes to replace silicon and continue the trend towards smaller, better and more powerful devices.
Carbon nanotubes are super strong, extremely lightweight, low cost and, unlike silicon, can be easily scaled down below 7nm in the future due to their tiny 1-2 nm size. And more importantly, carbon nanotubes have been successfully used in standard CMOS fabs for years with no new tools required and can be produced at commercial for low cost.
From rolled up tablets and smartphones to printable displays and 3D video phones, the future has arrived with Nano-C’s proven and scalable carbon nanotube-based materials. Below are just a few examples of carbon-based electronics that will deliver a new era in electronics innovation.

|Memory||Nantero selected Nano-C’s carbon nanotubes for its new generation of superfast, energy efficient, high-density memory known as NRAM. By harnessing the power of carbon nanotubes, NRAM is 100s of times faster than NAND, delivers terabits of storage, and consumes very little power.|
|Printable Transistors||Carbon nanotubes enable a new generation of thinner, lighter and less power-consuming display systems. Flexible transistors are fabricated through a printing process rather than costly conventional semiconductor technologies.|
