A Review on Memristive Stateful Logic
With the realization of physical memristors, using memristors to perform stateful logic operations has been demonstrated feasible. In such operations, memristors simultaneously serve as latches and logic gates, thus enabling the in-situ computing which may open a new computing paradigm for computer architecture. In this paper, we first analyze two types of typical memristive stateful logic gates to reveal the working mechanism of the stateful logic, and then review the recent researches on the memristive stateful logic, and finally discuss the pros and cons of the stateful logic. We reach the conclusion that the stateful logic promises a novel computing paradigm which may revolutionize the conventional computer architecture, while its development is currently subjected to the state drift problem and is constrained by the lack of a general design methodology and physically verification.
