The electric device (100) according to the invention comprises a layer (107) of a memory material which has an electrical resistivity switchable between a first value and a second value. The memory material may be a phase change material. The electric device (100) further comprises a set of nanowires (NW) electrically connecting a first terminal (172) of the electric device and the layer (107) of memory material thereby enabling conduction of an electric current from the first terminal via the nanowires (NW) and the layer (107) of memory material to a second terminal (272) of the electric device. Each nanowire (NW) electrically contacts the layer (107) of memory material in a respective contact area. All contact areas are substantially identical. The method according to the invention is suited to manufacture the electric device (100) according to the invention.
