HSR too close to cliff

That HSR definition looks too close to the cliff!

Their selector is or closely resembles the threshold switching device like the ovonic type.

Why include transistors?

I had thought Crossbar utilized transistor-less "crossbar" arrays. Adding the transistor only worsens the density, compared to without.

Ah, I see the I-V indicates no self-compliance. That makes it transistor-bound. It's a waste of the built-in HSR.

to resistion - I am not sure about that. Looks like current still increases as voltage increases after the programming. And the device seems to be programmed w/o external current compliance, which is good.

The sign of applied compliance is the abrupt current jump in SET discontinuous with dI/dV afterward

to resistion -  it seems that they are using a passive crosspoint structure ("transistor-less" crossbar array) considering the core memory circuit pic shown above.

I guess they are refering to mux/demux transistors outside of the passive crosspoint memory structure (a circuit designer's point of view).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
