 for nanoacre
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      A unit (about 2 mm square) of real estate on a VLSI chip. The term gets its
      giggle value from the fact that VLSI nanoacres have costs in the same range
      as real acres once one figures in design and fabrication-setup costs.
