Processing within a Memristive Memory

  • Memory accesses are the bottleneck of modern computer systems both in terms of performance and energy. This barrier, known as "the Memory Wall", can be break by utilizing memristors. Memristors are novel passive electrical components with varying resistance based on the charge passing through the device [1]. In this abstract, the term "memristor" covers also an extension of the definition, memristive devices, which vary their resistance depending on a state variable [2]. While memristors are naturally used as memory cells, they can also be used for other applications, such as logic circuits [3]. We present a novel architecture that redefines the relationship between the memory and the processor by enabling data processing within the memory itself. Our architecture is based on a memristive memory array, in which we perform two basic logic operations: Imply (material implication) [4] and False.
