I agree totally that memristor practically applies to any two-terminal varistor with memory effect.

The thinness of the 3DIC wafer and the flexibility of printed/plastic electronics makes me think of soft/transparent electronics. Mechanical testing would have to become involved.

The obvious one that came to my mind was IPv6. Several of the ones on the list are going to depend on it, and 2012 should see the first real ISP deployments. larrym

@LarryM99 Nice catch. Clearly IoT and M2M will depend it plus, I imagine smartgrid. I was also thinking about LED for lighting and OLED for lighting, so i guess that is solid-state lighting. That brings us up to 22 technologies for 2012.

20 pages ... just so you can get more click revenue. Pppptttt! Just put the list on one page, and links to pages with full details. That way - I get the info I want - I only get the ads that are relevant - EE Times actually gets me to click on more than one page - Your ad customers actually get relevant views - (hint, hint) more click through for you At this point I don't care what the other 19 technologies are -- the EE Times page layout fails because you are wasting our time.

Great list EE Times team, congrats! Having said I have some issues with it ;-)...first it would be better to have 10 technologies, not 20. Most of us having short attention span have difficulty counting beyond 10, see Letterman for good entertainment value...it feels you are trying to play safe and secure all possible bets...I wish the list contained only technologies that are disruptive...there are a few on the list (40/100 Gb for example) that are just simple extensions of what is currently available, in this particular case I would rather propose photonics interconnects (see Luxtera, Intel, IBM) although this is probably more than 1 year out...a few ideas could be merged, like carbon nanotubes and graphene, it is broadly speaking the same thing...regardless I enjoy the list a lot, I hope you will follow up a year from now how well you did with your predictions...Kris

I've seen this statement many places recently - "energy is never lost but simply transformed from one form to another" - that's true and very comforting, and unfortunately not much good to us. 'Free Energy' IS diminished if entropy is increased - when everything has finally reached the same temperature (in a few tens or hundreds of billions of years from now) all of the energy that there ever was will still be there, but you won't be able to run a heat engine to convert any of it into mechanical 'work'.

Not sure I follow Dick...when my car converts chemical energy in a gas tank to a mechanical movement of my vehicle, I really do not care whether entropy is increasing in the process...sure, it does, and eventually it all will have the same temperature but personally I am going to worry much more about my own death first before worrying about death of universe...entropy increase every step in our life, when you dissolve sugar cube in your tea for example, but we still drink tea though...Kris

True, but a bit anachronistic. It is common practice in the industry to use "die" as both the singular and the plural...and to leave "dice" for the pair of white cubes with black dots that are used to play certain games of chance.

Yes, MEMs and memristors are strange animals put together...MEMs had been developed over 20 years or more, had been used in air bags for several years but are now experience wide-spread adaption in many applications...memristor on the other hand is a new beast, very recently discovered (although theoretically predicted by Chua many years ago) and it remains to be seen whether anything practical can be build using that technology...Kris

I guess none of us will care in a hundred years -but our grandkids will do for sure! Eventually (maybe 30-40 Bn years)even the stars will cool down and the universe will solidify .. or will it all come back into a huge mass, that becomes a black hole which then will explode into a new big bang and a new univeres will be born?

I read the list again and would like to suggest splitting the list into two categories: established technologies that will have significant commercial impact in 2012 and novel technologies that might make it to commercial world in the future but will not have meaningful dollar impact next year. In the first category I see: MEMs, NFC, Processors/GPU (it is really one story), LTE and Smart Grids (pick up will be slow but utilities are huge). In the second category I would assign: WSN/Internet of Things (again, this is just one story), Plastics, printed electronics, Graphene, AMOLED, mobile OS, energy harvesting and 3-D ICs. I am not certain about: solar conversion (too vague), next gen non-volatile memory (lots of research but nothing close to production), EUV (I have been reading about it for too long), white space radio (depends what spectrum regulators do), 40/100 GbE (I see that as incremental improvements). I would add: artificial intelligence (Watson, Siri, etc) and bio-sensors. Perhaps it would be exciting to establish some metrics on how successful these predictions are and measure them at the end of 2012? Or have all readers voting for their favorite theme? Kris

I read the list again and would like to suggest splitting the list into two categories: established technologies that will have significant commercial impact in 2012 and novel technologies that might make it to commercial world in the future but will not have meaningful dollar impact next year. In the first category I see: MEMs, NFC, Processors/GPU (it is really one story), LTE and Smart Grids (pick up will be slow but utilities are huge).

One item I would've added to the list is rechargeable batteries. Some very exciting research in using silicon nanowires in the anode of a lithium ion battery promises to increase battery capacity by 10x and reduce charging time by 10x. These batteries are still a few years away from commercialization, but they will revolutionize mobile electronics, EV/HEV, remote sensing, medical electronics -- pretty much every device that runs on battery power.

@iniewski Thanks for you weighing, sorting and consideration of the list. A metric could be the number of times we write stories including each particular buzz word during 2012. Then at the end of year just hit the search function and see how many occurences in the last 12 months. That could be your job Kris! :D But we might have a case of self-fulfilling prophecy. Or maybe the readers would care to vote, which would be a bit harder to organize.

Ah yes I think we wrote about that battery tech from Northwestern University http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4230722/Researchers-enhance-battery-electrode-specs But i believed even they are saying it is 3 to 5 years away from commercialization. Still if and when it does arrive it will push back on energy harvesting.

iniewski: in retrospect it IS better to stay with the winning formula of "Top 10 list" of the David Letterman fame. In all honesty and from some of the comments here I feel that we will always come close without hitting the mark in choosing the next big thing and even 20, 30 or 50 technologies would be disputed. And then there is the coarse and fine grains of ten technologies. I agree that we can lump some technologies together as evolutionary and only consider the revolutionary ones. But that's what makes this fun. What is evolutionary to one is revolutionary to another, depending on individual experiences, knowledge and biases. Maybe we could have Facebook-like function and check off the "likes" of our favorite hot technology (in fact one could arrange for that on each of the individual technology listed on its own page--today we are limited on this execution); make a tally and come back in a year with a new list based on this popularity contest. Never mind that each "breaktrough" technology is in the eye of the beholder and depends on many business, marketing and resource factors to have its impact on society. Don't want to discourage more comments; personally I'm going back to building a list of 2011 boondoggles of people, places and things. Waiting for your inputs.

A technology which I think is new in a way and will have an important use is Bluetooth Low Energy. And medical sensors will have high demand. It’s interesting that what is mentioned in this article in regards Ethernet wired connection, are we approaching the limit of physics? This made me think that perhaps we’re in an era of technology… the era of silicon… in order to transcend the limits imposed by the physics of this we would have to jump to a new wagon, graphene? Quantum computing? Electron entanglement perhaps?

Well, 2012 is just one year, so you can't expect too much change in just that time. But I have high hopes for 3D printing, so-called, which is the first step in what Star Trek calls the "replicator" (IIRC). If we remember that Star Trek "invented" the personal cell phone, it should not be a big leap to move on with a real replicator. There are some overhyped items on the list, though. One is, IoT. Not only overhyped, but a picture that makes little sense (e.g. "IP to Ethernet bridge - huh?). Another is LTE. FYI, telephony has been pushing packets rather than analog circuits for decades already. The analog part, if at all, is only between a CO and the home legacy analog telephone. It doesn't take LTE to do this. OLED? I've been hearing how it was going to revolutionize displays for so many years that I'm skeptical about a sudden burst in 2012. And there were probably others, but sorry, I'd have to flip pages again to remember them!

To expand slightly on the LTE bit. Even if the real intent was to say that packet-switched rather than circuit-switched telephony is the wave of the future, we should not confuse "circuit switched" to mean "analog." Telephone trunk lines moved to SONET in the mid 1980s, and SONET is all about packets. ISDN was all packet voice, to the home. 2G cellular is packet voice as well. You can do packet-switched VoIP over broadband, you can do it over 3G, over WiFi, you can even do VoIP in only in major trunk lines, and retain circuit-switching at the edges, for legacy purposes. Bottom line: LTE gets overhyped.

These emerging technologies are likely to dwarf whatever technologies are being used today. The Plastic electronic will make it environment friendly by making the disposable gadgets wherever the expected lifespan is limited. The Graphene and solar cell technologies will bring in new efficiencies in energy conversion and wireless sensors and energy harvesting technologies will be helping to reduce the carbon emissions across the globe. The 100 G/bits networks will make today's networks look like snails ! Just Amazing at what pace the technology is moving.
