This text aims to provide a thorough and complete introduction to memristive devices and their use in modern arithmetic units. The memristive devices can exhibit a wide range of characteristics and properties depending on their chemical and physical makeup. Often times, the expected application for the device determines many of these characteristics. The flexibility of the design of memristive devices is just one of its strongpoints as a candidate for future system design. Memristors are nonvolatile devices making them prime candidates for use in memory structures. Specifically, crossbars have been shown as the frontrunner in memristor-based storage. Memristors are capable of exhibiting high density and low power in these contexts. They have competitive read and write times and endurance. Perhaps most importantly, memristors are compatible with traditional CMOS designs as well as 3D architectures.
