A low-power nonvolatile programmable-logic cell array is proposed for energy-constrained applications such as wireless sensor nodes and mobile apparatuses. A 64x64 programmable-logic cell array includes a 9.2-Mbit nonvolatile switch, namely atom switch, as the routing switch and configuration memory. A 16-bit arithmetic logic unit, which is a building block(More)
Emerging nonvolatile memories (NVMs) have a potential to overcome the issues in the conventional static random-access memory (SRAM) based reconfigurable logic cell arrays (RLCAs). Replacing a CMOS switch element composed of a SRAM and a pass transistor by a NVM reduces chip size. And non-volatility reduces the stand-by power. More importantly, the(More)
