Unformatted text preview: Report on M icro/nanofludic Computing What is micro/nanofludic computing? Micro/nanofluidic computing is a computing paradigm incorporated on small-scale fluidic platforms with special purposes. The major objective of the microfluidic computing is rather taking place the traditional silicon based computing platform but enhance the functionality of such application by combing the advantages of microfluidic and computing capability together. Because of their small size, there will be many applications in specific areas like medicine and space technology. What are the basic characteristics of micro/nanofludic computing? The speed of fluidic computing is much slower than silicon-based techniques and it will not take the place of traditional computers. The basic types of operation of microfluidic computing include: determining the physical/chemical/biological properties in the fluid and the arithmetic operation based on the results.There are two architectures of the microfludic computing: one is standalone, which means directly...
