Abstract

A reconfigurable logic-in-memory (R-LIM) cell performs logic-in-memory functions as well as reconfigurable logic gates. The R-LIM cell is constructed with triple-gated (TG) feedback field-effect transistors (FBFETs) that are reconfigured in n-channel or p-channel modes via electrostatic doping. Each TG FBFET has one control gate electrode and two program-gate electrodes that determine the channel mode. Their reconfigurability enables the symmetrical operation of the n-channel and p-channel modes through an on-current ratio of 1:04. Furthermore, the R-LIM cell performs eight Boolean logic operations, storing the logic outputs for ≈100 s under zero-bias conditions. The R-LIM cell is useful for developing in-memory computing systems with high energy efficiency and functional logic.
