Abstract Recent research on NEM devices for logic and memory applications has been reviewed from the perspective of monolithic 3D (M3D) heterogeneous integration. In addition, the backgrounds of M3D CMOS-NEM reconfigurable logic (RL) circuits are described in detail. Moreover, 65-nm process based M3D CMOS-NEM RL circuits were proposed. It is predicted that proposed M3D CMOS-NEM RL circuits will exhibit 4.6x higher chip density, 2.3x higher operation frequency and 9.3x lower power consumption than CMOS-only ones (tri-state buffer case) for tile-to-tile operation.
