Welcome to IEEE Micros special issue on memristor-based computing. Memristors were a theoretical concept (proposed by circuit theorist Leon Chua in 1971) for over three decades until HP Labs built a physical device in 2008. Memristors have gained substantial interest since then because of their nonvolatility; a memristor remembers its past, even when the supply voltage is turned off. Moreover, memristors facilitate co-mingling of storage and computation. A number of memristor applications have been proposed and evaluated, including resistive memory, memristor-based logic, and even neuromorphic computing.
