Memristors and CMOS integrate to multiply

By integrating a memristor crossbar array with complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) control circuitry, a programmable neuromorphic computing chip can be created that is capable of efficient multiply–accumulate operations. The cover shows an optical microscopy image of the integrated chip, with the 54 × 108 crossbar array at the centre.
