As a new type of nonvolatile device, the memristor has become one of the most promising technologies for designing a new generation of high-density memory. In this paper, a 4-bit high-density nonvolatile memory based on a memristor is designed and applied to image storage. Firstly, a memristor cluster structure consisting of a transistor and four memristors is designed. Furthermore, the memristor cluster is used as a memory cell in the crossbar array structure to realize the memory design. In addition, when the designed non-volatile memory is applied to gray scale image storage, only two memory cells are needed for the storage of one pixel. Through the Pspice circuit simulation, the results show that compared with the state-of-the-art technology, the memory designed in this paper has better storage density and read–write speed. When it is applied to image storage, it achieves the effect of no distortion and fast storage.
