In the past decades, the progress of semiconductors has mainly been powered by Moore's law focusing on IC miniaturization down to nanoscale, resulting in the transition from microelectronics into nanoelectronics. Recently, we have witnessed the quick development of a new area of Micro/nanoelectronics beyond the boundaries of Moore's law, called "More than Moore" (MtM). MtM creates and adds various value micro/nanoelectronics systems, leading to virtually unlimited technology possibilities and application potentials. This chapter presents the changing global landscape of micro/nanoelectronics by summarizing the major ongoing technology and business development trends, especially the vision and strategy of MtM, by highlighting some potential applications, and by providing a systematic overview for the major MtM technologies. Keywords: Moore's law, More than Moore, Beyond CMOS, Heterogeneous integration.
