This paper provides a broad overview of spintronic devises with emphasis on memory and spintronic memristive systems. The operational fundamentals of spintronic devices are presented, followed by brief descriptions of magnetic tunneling junctions (MTJs), spin torque transfer RAM (STT-RAM), and spintronic memristors. Examples of spintronic applications in computing systems are given comprising multi-level cells (MLCs) and the design of a novel memristor based temperature sensor. © 2012 IEEE.
