Submission + - The Memristor - It may transform computer hardware (americanscientist.org)

al0ha writes: The first new passive circuit element since the 1830s might transform computer hardware.

In a thriving transistor monoculture where more transistors are created than grains of rice grown world wide; can a new circuit element find a place to take root and grow? That’s the question posed by the memristor, a device first discussed theoretically 40 years ago and finally implemented in hardware in 2008. The name is a contraction of “memory resistor,” which offers a good clue to how it works.
