You say “to-may-to” and I say “to-mah-to.” So how do you say “memristor”?

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” … Continue reading
