Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190075719

When performing a seed planting operation, a variety change distance may be calculated that corresponds to the distance from a variety zone boundary of a prescription map that a row unit of a planter must be located prior to initiating a variety change procedure for switching seed types.

MEMRISTOR-BASED MULTIPLIERS USING MEMRISTORS-AS-DRIVERS (MAD) GATES

Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190079731

Memristor-based multipliers using memristors-as-drivers (MAD) gates. As a result of employing MAD gates in memristor-based multipliers, such as shift-and-add multipliers, Booth multipliers and array multipliers, the number of delay steps may be less than half than the number of delay steps required in traditional CMOS implementations of multipliers. Furthermore, by using MAD gates, memristor-based multipliers can be implemented with less complexity (e.g., fewer memristors and drivers). As a result, by the memristor-based multipliers using MAD gates, the speed and complexity of a wide variety of arithmetic operations is improved.
