Power density has grown to be the dominant challenge for continued CMOS technology scaling.? As a result, there has been renewed interest in mechanical computing, particularly for very-low-power integrated circuit applications.? This presentation will begin with an overview of a reliable micro-relay technology that has been developed recently at UC Berkeley.? Relay-based circuit design is then discussed, and demonstrations of functional relay logic circuits are presented.? Finally, relay scaling for improved device density and performance is described, and the energy efficiency benefit of a scaled relay technology vs. a CMOS technology with comparable minimum dimensions is discussed.
