The desire to continually improve computing systems drives both the relentless scaling of existing silicon integrated circuit technology and the search for new technologies.? To be relevant, new devices must be both nanoscale and extremely capable.? Memristors appear to fulfill these requirements and have recently been recommended for additional focus in research and development by the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductor (ITRS).? Memristors are two-terminal devices that retain state, which provides many useful properties to complement transistors while enabling increased functionality in integrated circuits.? I will first describe the working mechanism of metal-oxide memristors and a related family of nanodevices, and then discuss their potential applications.? Some of the challenges with respect to realizing the promise of these circuit elements are presented, together with the recent significant progress.
