Memristive Threshold Logic Networks
Threshold logic gates (TLGs) are known for high-speed and low power consumption, which is essential for applications such as real-time processing and recognition of natural signals, as well as on-chip memory architecture and neural network implementation. Integration of memristors into the design allows extending the capabilities of threshold logic circuits. In this chapter, we review the hardware designs of memristive threshold logic (MTL) circuits that are inspired by the principle of neuron firing inside the brain. Variety of threshold architectures, their limitations and possible field of application are discussed.
