Abstract

This concept paper provides a first quantitative analysis of complementary magnetic tunnel junction logic (CMAT), a novel cascaded logic family composed solely of magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs). CMAT is a non-volatile logic family driven by field-induced spin-switching that was inspired by CMOS. A compact CMAT multiplexer is presented, and the impact of magnetoresistance on its behavior is analyzed. The efficiency of CMAT is shown to be a function of the MTJ magnetoresistance, providing impetus for further development of MTJs for computing applications.
