Memristor: the fourth circuit element

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/05...cuit-element/1

HP Labs has announced experimental proof of the existence of a building block for electronic circuits dubbed the 'memristor', which could lead to instant-on computing.

I recommend anyone at uni with an Athens login gives it a go - it's a very interesting paper, which is well explained, even if you don't do semiconductor physics/electrical engineering.

I'd post up a diagram that explains the whole thing from the paper, but it's illegal...

The concept of the part is really revolutionary, but it's worth pointing out that the team haven't managed to make a large-numbered lattice of them yet, and that's the real test of whether we can use the technology yet.

BAD!!!

there is no point in trying to extend the silicon computer format; they should instead be pushing more for quantum computing!

(don't take my bad seriously, its only a joke!)

Huh. Cool.

I'll take a petabyte hard drive now, plzkthxbai?

:P

They can also be fashioned into non-volatile solid-state memory, which would allow greater data density than hard drives with access times potentially similar to DRAM, replacing both components. HP prototyped a crossbar latch memory using the devices that can fit 100 gigabit in a square centimeter. The highest-density Flash memories store 16 gigabit in the same area, for comparison. HP has reported that its version of the memristor is about one tenth the speed of DRAM.

I rearly would like to read the paper but it's very expensive. I guess I can do when I get to uni?
is it posible to imagine this as EEPROM on steroids?

Everyone with an access to the athens system, unfortunatly i've forgot my logon details so i cant access it from home. If Anyone wants a copy PM me, i'll pop in on tuesday and access it from uni and forward it.
