AbstractPerforming Boolean operations using conventional CMOS-based computers requires the wiring of multiple transistors. Hence, the processors of these computers are composed of millions of transistors, which increase the device size and power consumption. Here, we present a single MEMS resonator that can execute in parallel multiple logic gates. The concept is based on simultaneously encoding the binary information at different modes of vibration of a microplate. The proposed novel method allows the device not only to perform as a fully integrated logic gate but also as a parallel logic processor for which the same device can perform multiple logic gates simultaneously. The proposed method decreases the device footprint and reduces the power consumption required to perform multiple Boolean functions.
