The Business Prospects of Memristive Electronics
Volume 7, Issue 3

Blaise Mouttet

Memristive (i.e., memory resistive) electronics is defined by materials which have a memory of previously applied voltages or currents. This property has recently attracted much academic interest based on a scientific paper published by Hewlett-Packard researchers in 2008 which connected research on thin film nano-ionic materials to a theoretical memristive framework originally postulated in the 1970’s. Since this publication it has been recognized that numerous other materials being considered for new types of “transistor-less” non-volatile memory share similar memristive properties. This article reviews the history and current business and patent landscape of memristive electronics and its relevance to nanomaterials research.
