Abstract

See full text

A data storage cell for storing data is disclosed. In one aspect, the data storage cell comprises a first nano electromechanical switch comprising a first moveable beam fixed to a first anchor, a first control gate and a second control gate, a first output node against which the first moveable beam can be positioned. The data storage cell also comprises a second nano electromechanical switch comprising a second moveable beam fixed to a second anchor, a third control gate and a fourth control gate. The second moveable beam can be positioned against the first output node. Further, the first nano electromechanical switch and the second nano electromechanical switch are configured for selecting a first or a second state of the data storage cell and are configured for having their moveable beam complementary positioned to the first output node. A memory arrangement of such data storage cells is also disclosed, as well as methods for writing data to the data storage cells and for reading data from the data storage cells.
