|The Memristor is the [so called] fourth basic circuit device after the capacitor, the resistor and the inductor. Like the capacitor, the Memristor has a memory; it remembers the amount of charge that goes through it and will change its resistance according to the amount of charge that flowed through it…|
The technology called Memory Resistor or Memristor could bring forth a new generation of computer which would power-on instantly [no boot required] and could be used to process information in a similar fashion as the human brain. More importantly, it could mean that HP has discovered the ultimate, “unifying” storage technology, which combines DRAM and Magnetic storage properties.
