The talk starts with a short presentation of Electronics and Microelectronics evolution. Than it will be presented a set of several trends in the design of micro and nanoelectronics circuits, including architectural issues, variability and sources of variability, EDA tools, physical design issues, printability, design of transistor networks, Layout Strategies, Regularity, 3D circuits, flexible electronics, new devices, Stretchable Silicon, Fault Tolerance, Tolerance to Radiation Effects, Factory Integration, ... The talk try to motivate the audience to explore the upcoming challenges in the field.
