Resonant tunneling transistors and circuit architectures with enhanced computational functionality are promising candidates for future nano-scale integration. In this paper we propose a full adder cell based on multiple terminal linear threshold gates. The threshold gates are composed of monolithically integrated resonant tunneling diodes and(More)
Preface This report is a summary of the activities in the field of resonant tunneling device circuit design. (GMUD) during the first year of the Microelectronics Advanced Research Initiative projects ANSWERS (Autonomous Nanoelectronic Systems with Extended Replication and Signalling) and LOCOM (Logic Circuits with Reduced Complexity based on Devices with(More)
This paper presents an evaluation of body biasing based on measured static and dynamic device performance. The efficiency of body biasing in sub-130 nm CMOS circuits strongly depends on the device type and operating temperature. While forward biasing still provides a srgnificant performance gain in a 90 nm CMOS triple well process, the efficiency of reverse(More)
This paper analyzes the impact of nano-scale technology on future circuit design and describes several prototypes of logic and memory applications. Resonant tunneling transistors, single electron transistors, and quantum cellular automata are reviewed as relevant nanoelectronic device categories. In regard to the limited interconnectivity and the(More)
