The performances of an SET required for integration are discussed. Conventional SETs had several problems such as large leakage current, insufficient voltage gain and so on. To overcome these problems, a new SET utilizing Schottky barriers as tunnel junctions is proposed. Its current characteristics and Coulomb-blockade conditions are calculated and the effectiveness for an integrated device is discussed.
