—Emerging nonvolatile memories (ENVMs) such as phase-change random access memories (PCRAMs) or oxide-based resistive random access memories (OxRRAMs) are promising candidates to replace Flash and Static Random Access Memories in many applications. This paper introduces a novel set of building blocks for field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) using ENVMs. We(More)
We present a novel class of decision diagrams, called <i>Biconditional Binary Decision Diagrams</i> (BBDDs), that enable efficient logic synthesis for XOR-rich circuits. BBDDs are binary decision diagrams where the Shannon's expansion is replaced by the <i>biconditional</i> expansion. Since the <i>biconditional</i> expansion is based on the XOR/XNOR(More)
Memristive devices have the potential for a complete renewal of the electron devices landscape, including memory, logic and sensing applications. This is especially true when considering that the memristive functionality is not limited to two-terminal devices, whose practical realization has been demonstrated within a broad range of different technologies.(More)
—Reversible logic synthesis is an emerging research area to aid the circuit implementation for multiple nano-scale technologies with bounded fan-out. Due to the inherent complexity of this problem, several heuristics are proposed in the literature. Among those, reversible logic synthesis using decision diagrams offers an attractive solution due to its(More)
—In this paper, we present the EPFL combinational benchmark suite. We aim at completing existing benchmark suites by focusing only on natively combinational benchmarks. The EPFL ccombinational benchmark suite consists of 23 combi-national circuits designed to challenge modern logic optimization tools. It is further divided into three parts. The first part(More)
—Devices with controllable-polarity, such as Double-Gate Vertically-Stacked Nanowire FETs, have shown promising interests in recent years to implement XOR-based logic functions in an unprecedented compact way. Such a compactness is obtained at the cost of a denser interconnect, that can be mitigated by designing an efficient hyper-regular layout structure,(More)
Hardware security concerns such as intellectual property (IP) piracy and hardware Trojans have triggered research into circuit protection and malicious logic detection from various design perspectives. In this article, emerging technologies are investigated by leveraging their unique properties for applications in the hardware security domain. Security, for(More)
