Advances in Physics: The Memrister

HP scientists have discovered a fourth element of electrical circuits, the memrister, the implications of which could be revolutionary: Engineers could, for example, develop a new kind of computer memory that would supplement and eventually replace today’s commonly used dynamic random access memory (D-RAM). Computers using conventional D-RAM lack the ability to retain information once they are turned off. When power is restored to a … Continue reading Advances in Physics: The Memrister
