Abstract

Non-volatile field effect devices and circuits using same. A non-volatile field effect transistor utilizes a nanatube-based mechanical switch (30). The switch location can be at the source, drain or gate locations of the field effect transistor. Under one embodiment, the field effect device includes a source region and a drain region with a channel region (27) disposed therebetween. The source region is connected to a corresponding terminal (T2). A gate structure is disposed over the channel region and connected to a corresponding terminal (T1). A nanotube switching element (30) is responsive to a first control terminal (T3) and a second control terminal (T4) and is electrically positioned in series between the drain region and a terminal corresponding to the drain region. The nanotube switching element is electromechanically operable to one of an open and closed state to thereby open or close an electrical communication path between the drain region and its corresponding terminal.
