The paper proposes an architecture for a multiplier-adder network that can be used for the design of a digital neuron cell. The core of the multiplier is based on a hybrid memristor network, in which digital CMOS logic is combined with multi-stable storing memristor devices. The multi-bit storing feature of memristors is favoured since it simplifies the realisation of ternary data. Using such a ternary number system in binary logic leads to a redundant number representation (RNR) that allows to speed up multiplications since they are reduced to adders working in constant time independent of the word length. For the verification of the multiplier architecture an own special simulation system was developed in C++ allowing flexible design and fast analogue simulation of large complex memristor networks. The superiority of the hybrid memristive architecture in terms of latency and bandwidth compared to an adder with carry-look-ahead technique is analytically shown.
