A Linear Threshold Gate Implementation in Single Electron Technology

  title={A Linear Threshold Gate Implementation in Single Electron Technology},
  author={Casper Lageweg and Sorin Dan Cotofana and Stamatis Vassiliadis},
In this paper we focus on the design of threshold logic functions in Single Electron Tunneling (SET) technology, using the tunnel junction’s specific behavior, i.e., the abi lity to control the transport of individual electrons. We introduce a novel design of an n-input linear threshold gate which can accommodate both positive and negative weights and built-in signal amplification, using1 tunnel junction and n + 2 true capacitors. As an example we present a 4-input threshold gate with both… CONTINUE READING
