Memristors are an attractive option for use in future architectures due to their non-volatility, high density and low power operation. Gas sensing is one of the proposed application of memristive devices. In spite of these advantages, memristors are susceptible to defect densities due to the nondeterministic nature of nano-scale fabrication. In this paper, a novel spice memristor model incorporating fault models that emulates the gas sensing behaviour with/without faults is developed for simulation and integration with design automation tools. Our simulation results show that the proposed non-linear model detects the presence of the oxidising/reducing gas and analyses the defects/faults affecting the functionality of the sensor.
