Spintronics technology provides an exciting platform for implementing computational structures, and recent work has demonstrated the potential for leveraging its nonvolatility properties to build energy-efficiency systems. This talk presents a view of a collaborative effort between physicists, material scientists, circuit designers and architects that has led to the development of novel device structures, circuits and memory arrays. Together, these lead to viable pathways for building spin-based structures for computation, memory and in-memory computation.
