Enabling full associativity with memristive address decoder

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Address decoders are typically built using regular logic gates. A novel Memristive Perfect Induction gate replaces standard NAND, allowing for storing the address alongside data and comparing it to the input address, thus transforming the address decoder into CAM and enabling fully associative access. Applications include fully associative TLB, cache, and virtually addressable memory.
