Abstract

Memristor technology has grown rapidly since its beginnings and become a potential candidate to revolutionize how data is stored and processed throughout all of the circuit theory. The memristor-based digital logic circuits can be a promising alternative to traditional integrated circuit technology when examining any advanced computer systems. In this work, we propose a hardware design for memristor-based resistive random access memory (RRAM) using Verilog hardware description language (Verilog HDL). The implementation results of a 256-byte memory on Xilinx Vivado targeted for the Artix-7 FPGA board demonstrate that the memristor-based RRAM outperforms the conventional RAM in terms of power consumption. Furthermore, the proposed architectures use less than 8% of the available hardware resources on the Artix-7 board. Hence, the proposed approach can be integrated into Internet of Things (IoT) applications with limited hardware resources or extended to memory systems in memory systems with larger capacities.
