In a great number of electronic systems, microsystems like microscreens, MEMS and MOEMS are embedded. In this course the different existing technologies will be presented like those based on liquid crystals, their applications and the challenges associated to the interconnection of such components to other subsystems. Another field of recent interest is nanoelectronics with new technologies, components and materials that are being incorporated in new systems and applications. These new nanoelectronic techniques and components as well as the associated methodologies to incorporate them in electronic systems of high added value will be presented, using examples based on real applications in fields like nanotechnology and bioengineering.
