Abstract

The high speed of all-carbon spin logic (ACSL) is an ideal match for the non-volatility of resistive random-access memory (RRAM). Combining these two technologies in a computing system provides exceptionally high efficiency, with the possibility of replacing traditional CMOS due to the potential for high speed, low cost, and low energy. Before such a system can be realized, circuits must be designed that interface the ACSL processing with the RRAM storage. This work therefore proposes an ACSL sensor circuit that enables detection of the resistance states in an RRAM array. This sensor circuit and the underlying symmetric latch are validated through a novel behavioral model that enables SPICE simulations of ACSL circuits.
