Resumo

The original Pascaline was a mechanical calculator able to sum and subtract integers. It encodes information in the angles of the mechanical components (such as wheels and cylinders), is aided by gravity, and performs the calculations. Here, we show that such a concept can be realized in electronics using memory elements such as memristive systems. By using memristive emulators, we have demonstrated experimentally the memcomputing version of the mechanical Pascaline, capable of processing and storing the numerical results in the multiple levels of each memristive element. Our result is the first experimental demonstration of multidigit arithmetic with multilevel memory devices that further emphasize the versatility and potential of memristive systems for future on-chip information processing and storage architectures.
