Abstract
(EN)
A nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) oscillator network and methods for its operation are disclosed. The NEMS oscillator network includes one or more network inputs configured to receive one or more input signals. The NEMS oscillator network also includes a plurality of NEMS oscillators coupled to the one or more network inputs. Each of the plurality of NEMS oscillators includes a NEMS resonator and produces a radio frequency (RF) output signal that oscillates at a particular frequency and a particular phase. The NEMS oscillator network further includes a plurality of connections that interconnect the plurality of NEMS oscillators. The NEMS oscillator network further includes one or more network outputs coupled to the plurality of NEMS oscillators and configured to output one or more output signals.

L'invention concerne un réseau d'oscillateurs à systèmes nanoélectromécaniques (NEMS) et des procédés de fonctionnement associés. Le réseau d'oscillateurs NEMS comprend une ou plusieurs entrées de réseau conçues pour recevoir un ou plusieurs signaux d'entrée. Le réseau d'oscillateurs NEMS comprend également une pluralité d'oscillateurs NEMS couplés à la ou aux entrées de réseau. Chacun de la pluralité d'oscillateurs NEMS comprend un résonateur NEMS et émet un signal de sortie radiofréquence (RF) qui oscille à une fréquence particulière et à une phase particulière. Le réseau d'oscillateurs NEMS comprend en outre une pluralité de connexions qui interconnectent la pluralité d'oscillateurs NEMS. Le réseau d'oscillateurs NEMS comporte en outre une ou plusieurs sorties de réseau couplées à la pluralité d'oscillateurs NEMS et conçues pour émet un ou plusieurs signaux de sortie.
