Memristor Applications for Programmable Analog ICs
This paper demonstrates that memristors can be used to implement programmable analog circuits, leveraging mem- ristor's fine-resolution programmable resistance without causing perturbations due to parasitic components. Fine-resolution pro- grammable resistance is achieved by varying the amount of flux across memristors. The resistance programming can be achieved by controlling the input pulsewidth and its frequency. For demon- stration, a memristor is designed for a pulse-programmable mid- band differential gain amplifier with fine resolution.
