The memristor is a resistive component which conducts current both ways, a fundamental disadvantage vs. semiconductor devices. A crosspoint matrix of memristors is filled with backdoor paths. Some sort of diode function is required for row-column selection. No mention in these press releases of how that is done. Presumably they're just not disclosing their solution to this problem. Time will tell.

Yes, a claim of "Whatever the best in flash memory is, we'll be able to double that.", when he has no idea where FLASH will be in 2013, is falling into the old trap of comparing what you have in the labs, with the alternative in volume production. A message for stockholders perhaps, not customers ?

I was surprised HP tried to tag this to the Leon Chua work in 1971 (based on charge and flux) - there is no technical basis for doing that, as HP's design has neither charge nor flux, but perhaps it was a ploy to protect against counter patent claims, and it talks-up share prices ? Can anyone imagine the old HP placing bluff and bluster, ahead of facts ?

I'd be surprised if HP overturns Hynix's flash rollout, they can't even come through on their consumer electronics and PC divisions.

Atleast the statements sound really confident about the schedule. I do not think they have to release the complete roadmap to public now. If they can get it right I hope this will keep HP back on track.

Everybody is used to the name Flash so perhaps even though it really isn't flash erased, they should stick with that. I'm thinking since it's resistive, it could be Flash-r memory.

I think at best I-V characteristics are mildly amusing.

No one knows what memories will be used in a few years, so the Korean companies are covering all bases, while other places are only betting on some candidates (not enough government support).

There could be a flaw in the application of memristance to describe these new memories, as the efficiency of converting electron current to state changes is not 100%.

If HP/Hynix can deliver on this promise it would truly be disruptive to the memory industry as we know it today. But given the sparse details about this technology, I take this announcement as more wishful thinking than a solid plan.
