We have investigated a NanoBridge technology for a high performance LSI that is reconfigurable. The NanoBridge comprises a solid electrolyte sandwiched betvveen two metals. The switch has two conducting states (ON/ OFF) that persist in the absence of a power supply. The distinctive advantages of this switch are its small size (<30nm) and low ON resistance (<100Ω). This paper proposes a three terminal NanoBridge, for which the control gate is separate from the current path. This innovative switch resolve the issues arising from large current during switching that occurs in a two-terminal NanoBridge.
