Many two terminal molecular devices functioning as diodes have been synthesized with responses similar to solid state devices such as rectifying and resonant tunneling diodes. In this paper, the feasibility of integrating these molecular diodes into current circuit architectures is explored. A bistable latch and memory architecture are simulated using IV data from the 2'-amino-4-ethynylphenyl-4'-ethynylphenyl-5'-nitro-1-bensenethiolate molecule previously published by the Reed group at Yale University. HSPICE simulation results are used to illustrate the performance of a bistable latch and a memory array.
