Also ionic charge should have different effect from electronic charge, but it's not distinguished in the memristance concept.

They put up all those tilted figure 8 I-V's, each point is a different resistance, depending where you stop!

Not only charge passed, but its direction too. You just read it using AC current pulse to keep the resistance unchanged.

So which will make it? FeRAM, MRAM, PRAM or RRAM? My friend, Bob Merritt, says they will all find a home. Any thoughts?

I'll bet 1TB thumb Drives come a lot sooner than 10 years. By then we'll be into Petabytes, probably.

I guess it helps that HP buys a lot of DRAM from Hynix :-) If a big customer of yours comes to you and asks you to license their technology for a small sum, it makes sense to oblige. Hynix is also way behind on RRAM compared to Samsung (who has been working on it since 2000, and has a lot more work/IP on it than HP). So it makes sense for them to use HP's know-how to be able to start competing with Samsung.

Junko thanks for backround in detailed. However i wonder why lecturer insists to not teach memristor as 4 element of electronic. Here is an interesting post of spectrum, ( http://tinyurl.com/2g3hpn4 )which i believe details everything clearly. Even the experts couldnt believe that it would be feasible and real one day, it was just a theory. Its clearly time for all lecturers all over to world to learn&teach to new generations of electronics more about missing element. So than it could be accepted and implemented widely. Thanks to HP and Hynix to break down such thoughts like " "I don't think the memristor will be taught in undergraduate courses until it is widely adopted in industry for the simple reason that any circuit containing even only one memristor must be analyzed by nonlinear techniques,"

Spin torque mram and pcm or pram qualify as memristors in strict sense.

Interesting this device - one whose resistance can alter with charge. However I have difficulty imagining a scenario where this can be used in a circuit. Can someone elaborate a bit more on the possible applications already mentioned in the article? Thanks!

eeTimes is a great site, I just come across this great invention going on. ReRAM is something very new for me. I came across it at this site only. But this memory has got very good potential of changing the present day use of Memories and Storage. Hope it will get standardized earlier. But since the giants are after it this memory will come with some royalties, if it is like that then will not survive in the market rather will not be able to get positioned in the market.
