We propose Autonomous Error-Tolerant (AET) cellular network based architecture for future nano-electronic systems. Each AET cell consists of a nano-core, dedicated for local computing, CMOS cell-peripherals, responsible for cell I/O and System-level tasks, and their interface circuits. Since nano-devices are lack of significant voltage gain and the nano-interconnetcs are highly resistive, driving signals for a long distance is hard to achieve. Apart from these, fabricating nano-interconnects need high precise patterning technologies. So, we propose, for inter-cellular communication, CMOS interconnects in 45 nm feature size, with a sufficient bandwidth as required.
