    In 2008, Williams et al. reported the discovery of the fourth fundamental passive circuit element, memristor, which exhibits electrically controllable state-dependent resistance [1]. We show that one of the first wireless radio detector, called cat's whisker, also the world's first solid-state diode, had memristive properties. We have identified the state variable governing the resistance state of... View full abstract»

    Memristors are two-terminal devices with varying resistance, where the behavior is dependent on the history of the device. In recent years, different physical phenomena of resistive switching have been linked with the theoretical concept of a memristor, and several emerging memory devices (e.g., Phase Change Memory, Resistive RAM, STT-MRAM) are now considered as memristors. Memristors hold promise... View full abstract»

    Memristive devices have the potential for a complete renewal of the electron devices landscape, including memory, logic and sensing applications. This is especially true when considering that the memristive functionality is not limited to two-terminal devices, whose practical realization has been demonstrated within a broad range of different technologies. For electron devices, the memristive func... View full abstract»

    A compact circuit model and physical hardware emulation for floating memristors are presented. By utilizing memristor 'resistance' as a state variable, and constructing a hardware emulator using a low-complexity modular structure, the model-based emulation can replicate diverse behaviors of different device types. Our hardware emulator for a voltage-actuated, threshold sensitive, two-terminal, flo... View full abstract»

    The rapid, exponential growth of modern electronics has brought about profound changes to our daily lives. However, maintaining the growth trend now faces significant challenges at both the fundamental and practical levels [1]. Possible solutions include More Moore?developing new, alternative device structures and materials while maintaining the same basic computer architecture, and More Than Moor... View full abstract»

    Since the 2008-dated discovery of memristor behavior at the nano-scale, Hewlett Packard is credited for, a large deal of efforts have been spent in the research community to derive a suitable model able to capture the nonlinear dynamics of the nano-scale structures. Despite a considerable number of models of different complexity have been proposed in the literature, there is an ongoing debate over... View full abstract»

    Recent research in nanotechnology has led to the practical realization of nanoscale devices that behave as memristors, a device that was postulated in the seventies by Chua based on circuit theoretical reasonings. On the other hand, neuromorphic engineering, a discipline that implements physical artifacts based on neuroscience knowledge, has related neural learning mechanisms to the operation of m...
