This chapter addresses emerging resistive nonvolatile memory (NVM) circuit design techniques and implementations for energy-efficient systems. First we introduce emerging memory technologies, including resistive RAM (ReRAM), phase change memory (PCM), and spin-torque transfer magnetic RAM (STT-MRAM). Next, we examine circuit design challenges for read and write operations, and review some of the advanced circuit techniques. Lastly, we discuss the implementation for energy-efficient systems with nonvolatile logic and nonvolatile SRAM using emerging resistive NVM.
