Bryon Moyer at Electronic Engineering Journal and I had a discussion a couple of weeks ago about memristors, real and ideal, and resistive RAM. Is there a difference? Does it matter? What is it we’re really looking for, a “true” memristor or a low-cost, nonvolatile way to store bits that’s competitive with NAND Flash memory?
For perspectives on these and other questions, see Moyer’s new article “A Memristor By Any Other Name?”
