A method for laying out arrays of components in programmable 2D arrangements with nanometer-scale precision is needed for the manufacture of high density nanoelectronic circuitry. We report programmed self-assembly of gold prototype nanoelectronic components into closely packed rows with precisely defined inter-row spacings by in situ hybridization of DNA-functionalized components to a preassembled 2D DNA scaffolding on a surface. This approach is broadly applicable to the manufacture of nanoscale integrated circuits for logic, memory, sensing, and other applications.
