This fabric update summarizes recent advances for the Nanoscale Application Specific Integrated Circuits (NASICs) nanoscale computing fabric. We provide a brief overview of NASICs, and discuss recent work at all fabric levels. We present advances in device design and optimization including omega gated and junctionless nanowire field effect transistors, methodologies for validation of functionality and parameter variation evaluation, new circuit-level sequencing schemes and performance optimization techniques. We also discuss techniques for defect and parameter variation resilience, ongoing fabrication directions including prototyping and scalable assembly efforts, and directions for the future.
