Abstract

Spintronic technologies have demonstrated significant promise due to multitude of features that can find applications in storage, cache, non-volatile combinational logic, sequential logic, search engines, security primitives, and, neuro-inspired computing to name a few. This paper reviews well-known spintronic devices, and circuits and systems that exploit their special properties for novel applications. Analysis indicates substantial benefits in area, energy-efficiency and performance compared to conventional complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology.
