Memristive Crossbar Memory Lifetime Evaluation and Reconfiguration Strategies
By Peyman Pouyan, Esteve Amat, and Antonio Rubio
Among the emerging technologies and devices for highly scalable and low power memory architectures, memristors are considered as one of the most favorable alternatives for next generation memory technologies. They are attracting great attention recently, due to their many appealing characteristics such as non-volatility and compatibility with CMOS fabrication process. But beside all memristor advantages, their drawbacks including manufacturing process variability and limited read/write endurance, could risk their future utilization. This paper will evaluate the impact of reliability concerns in lifetime of memristive crossbars and will present the design basis of two proposed reconfiguration approaches in memristive crossbar-based memories, in order to extend the system lifetime by utilizing available resources in an intense way and without need of failure recovery. It is observed that the adaptive reconfiguring approach can improve the crossbar reliability and extend its lifetime up to 65 percent in comparison with non-adaptive reconfiguration strategy.

Call for Papers
IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) seeks original manuscripts for submission under Technical Tracks. In a track the technical contents of a submitted manuscript must be of an emerging nature and fall within the scope and competencies of the Computer Society. Manuscripts not abiding by these specifications will be administratively rejected. The topics of interest for the Technical Tracks are as follows:
- Enterprise Computing Systems
- Computational Networks
- Hardware and Embedded System Security
- Educational Computing
- High Performance Computing
- Next Generation Wireless Computing Systems
- Computer System Security
- Emerging Hardware for Computing
Submitted articles must describe original research which is not published or currently under review by other journals or conferences. Extended conference papers should be identified in the submission process and have considerable novel technical content; all submitted manuscripts will be screened using a similarity checker tool. As an author, you are responsible for understanding and adhering to our submission guidelines. You can access them at the IEEE Computer Society web site, www.computer.org. Please thoroughly read these before submitting your manuscript.
Please submit your paper to Manuscript Central at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tetc-cs and select the "Technical Track" option in the drop-down menu for "Manuscript Type".
