Memristor is a nano-scale component with information storage capability and binary characteristics. The memristive logic circuit composed of the structure is simple in structure and complete in logic function, and can be applied to logic operation and storage. However, the existing memristive logic circuit has a single function, the component size is too large, and the delay step is too much, so that the circuit efficiency is low. This paper proposes a novel memristor-CMOS hybrid full adder. Compared with MAD Gates, IMPLY logic circuit significantly reduces the operation steps, the circuit has no time delay, and optimizes the requirements of circuit components. Based on the proposed circuit, a novel N-bit subtractor is designed, which can be combined with the full-adder to implement composite logic operations.
