Seems to be really easy! At least that is my opinion! http://www.yachtbooker.de/Yachtcharter-korfu-marina-gouvia.html

Some further comments: Recently, NASA Tech Briefs (June 2010) published an article on a fully printed phased array antenna which used FETS based on carbon nanotubes (CNT's). These operated at 5.2GHz, but were capable of ~100GHz operation at high power. Switching voltage was a low 1.8V while previous flexible FET's required ~50V. The article contained a wealth of performance data. You can find the link here: http://www.techbriefs.com/component/content/article/8070

Kind of like the "Replicator" of Star Trek fame. Punch in a demand for a particular part, and wait for it to appear. In this case, the raw materials can be pretty much limited while getting a wide variety of functions out. While the size is currently large, we can expect reductions over time. I would like to see some performance data published on what can be made now.

Way-back-when, I remember getting my first schematic capture program from a company called DataNet. It ran on my IBM AT, and was the greatest thing since sliced bread. A few years later, I was able to create a state machine in schematic form and receive a simulation, and a file suitable for programming something like an 18CV8. Total magic: stepper motor controller in two (software) steps. Now it sounds as though we are closing in on the following work flow: define the design via VHDL, schematic, tables; simulate; send it to your desktop printer to be realized in a few minutes in hardware.

This is really interesting

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
