In order to reduce undesired heat dissipation, reversible logic offers a promising solution where the erasure of information can be avoided to overcome the Landauer limit. Among the reversible logic gates, Fredkin (CSWAP) gate can be used to compute any Boolean function in a reversible manner. To realize reversible computation gates, Nano-electromechanical Systems (NEMS) offer a viable platform, since NEMS can be produced en masse using microfabrication technology and controlled electronically at high-speeds. In this work-in-progress paper, design and fabrication of a NEMS-based implementation of a CSWAP gate is presented. In the design, the binary information is stored by the buckling direction of nanomechanical beams and CSWAP operation is accomplished through a mechanism which can selectively allow/block the forces from input stages to the output stages. The gate design is realized by fabricating NEMS devices on a Silicon-on-Insulator substrate. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.
