Memristor - The 4th FundamentL Electronic Element Full REPORT Download
A memristor (pronounced "memory resistor") is a passive two-terminal circuit element in which the resistance is a function of the history of the current and voltage through the device. Memristor theory was formulated and named by Leon Chua in a 1971 paper.
On April 30, 2008, a team at HP Labs announced the development of a switching memristor based on a thin film of titanium dioxide. It has a regime of operation with an approximately linear charge-resistance relationship as long as the time-integral of the current stays within certain bounds. devices are being developed for application in nanoelectronic memories, computer logic, and neuromorphic computer architectures.
