Abstract: Resonant tunneling devices have been used in various digital circuit applications to improve packing density, circuit speed, as well as power consumption. In this paper, we describe a new class of applications of using those quantum tunneling devices in digital circuit design. More specifically, we have developed a strategy to use RTDs in conjunction with CMOS logic circuits that leads In new circuits that have elevated nuke immunity. The proposed method utilizes RTD's negative differential resistance propert…
