Novel techniques for memristive multifunction logic design


We present novel techniques for realising reliable low overhead logic functions and more complex systems based on the switching characteristics of memristors. Firstly, we show that memristive circuits have inherent properties for realising multiple valued MIN-MAX operations over the post algebra. We then present an efficient hybrid 1T-4M logic architecture for dual XOR/AND and XNOR/OR functionality, which can be seamlessly integrated with the existing CMOS technology. Although memristors are usually considered to operate at lower frequencies, however, recent advances in technology show their potentiality at high frequencies. To this end, we also explore the effects of high frequencies on their performance and thereby propose reliable high frequencydesign techniques based on our 1T-4M architectures. Experimental results, based on the design of full adders and multipliers over GF, show that the proposed designs require significantly lower power and overhead while maintaining reliable performance at low as well as at high frequencies compared to the existing techniques.
