This is an abstract for a poster to be presented at the Fifth Foresight Conference on Molecular Nanotechnology. There will be a link from here to the full article when it is available on the web.Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) promises new function for engineered systems, such as fairly general purpose fabrication and disassembly. Systems designing afresh to take advantage of these new functions should offer original architectures. One compelling example is the "logical core architecture," which uses subsystems providing general purpose manufacturing to enable a long-lived, very flexible system.
