An architectural rationale and an experimental program aimed at the development of molecular electronics switching devices for memory and computing applications are discussed. Two-terminal molecular switch tunnel junctions are identified as the critical device components of molecular electronics-based circuitry. They can be tiled in two dimensions and are tolerant of manufacturing defects. Singly and multiply configurable solid-state switching devices that are based upon electrochemically switchable molecular and supramolecular systems are discussed in terms of both the synthesis of the molecular components and the fabrication and performance of the devices.
