The recent advancements in the large-scale integration of single crystalline, inorganic nanowire (NW) arrays for electronic and sensor applications are discussed, specifically involving the contact printing of NWs at defined locations. We address the advantages, limitations, and the state-of-the-art of this technology, and present an integration platform for future printable, heterogeneous sensor circuitry based on NW parallel arrays.
