Vertically stacked, low-voltage organic ternary logic circuits including nonvolatile floating-gate memory transistors


Research paper from KAIST and Gachon University. Abstract "Multi-valued logic (MVL) circuits based on heterojunction transistor (HTR) have emerged as an effective strategy for high-density information processing without increasing the circuit complexity. Herein, an organic ternary logic inverter (T-inverter) is demonstrated, where a nonvolatile floating-gate flash memory is employed to ... » read more
