TYPES OF MEMRISTOR
Spintronic Memristor Titanium dioxide Memristor

WORKING OF MEMRISTOR

Spintronic Memristor Spin of electrons Magnetism Magneto resistance principal Electrons flow alters the magnetization state

WORKING OF MEMRISTOR

Titanium dioxide Memristor Two thin layer sandwich First layer oxygen deficient Oxygen vacancies control resistance

MEMRISTOR FOR STORAGE


Nonvolatile Energy required during switching Memristor as switches in crossbar architecture

CROSSBAR ARCHITECTURE
Connected mesh of perpendicular wires Crossing wires connected by switch Switch closed applying positive voltage Switch opened by reversed voltage

MEMORY MANAGEMENT

Read operation Write operation Addressing

READ OPERATION
Voltage below threshold voltage applied If ON conducts If OFF doesn't conduct

WRITE OPERATION
A voltage above threshold voltage applied Stage inverted by opposite polarity Voltage for duration tw applied

ADDRESSING

Lines arranged in columns and rows Cell addressed by row and column

ADVANTAGES
Eliminates delay Speed inversely proportional to size Large density 1terabit/cm2 Analog data storage possible

DISADVANTAGES
Dissipates heat No design standards Needs defect engineering

APPLICATION
Faster SSDs Brain like system Smaller hardware devices Replace DRAM

CONCLUSION
Latest technology High speed memory devices Low power requirements
