Micro-scale and nano-scale technology developments have the potential to revolutionize smart and small systems. The application of systems-engineering methodologies that integrate standalone, small-scale technologies and interface them with macro-technologies to build useful systems is critical to realizing the potential of these technologies. Contributing to the knowledge base on SE principles for micro- and nano-technology integration, this book offers new approaches to developing smart systems. The text provides practical knowledge about the capabilities of micro- and nanotechnologies and how they interface with each other and with macro systems.
