US Patent 7535070 - Nanoscale spin wave computer architecture

This patent from the University of California system teaches spintronic based computing based on the crossbar switch architecture providing a degree of parallel computer processing which may be superior to conventional computation systems. Claim 1 reads:

1. A solid-state spin-wave computing device comprised of a plurality of inputs and a plurality of outputs, wherein said device is configured to simultaneously transmit data elements from each of said plurality of inputs to each of said plurality of outputs by using spin-waves of same or differing frequencies and wherein said solid-state spin-wave device is a nano-scale reconfigurable mesh.
