We propose a novel semiconductor device in which electronic-analogue dendritic trees grow on multilayer single-electron circuits. A simple cellular-automaton circuit was designed for generating dendritic patterns by utilizing the physical properties of single-electron devices, i.e. quantum and thermal effects in tunneling junctions. We demonstrate typical operations of the proposed circuit through extensive numerical simulations.
