Abstract

The memristor is fundamental electrical element theoretically postulated by Leon Chua in 1971 and successfully fabricated by HP Labs in 2008. However, its electrical characteristics are not yet fully understood which really leads us to study the behavior of such devices. For this development, it is essential to analyze a simple and flexible memristor model, for that reason SPICE memristor model seems to be frequently usable, especially in recent years, for its highly flexible and product very reliable and suitable for the electronic application. The adjustment of this model is based on the implementation of several parameters, which enables the changing on the IV characteristics of the device. Our aim is to analyze the functioning behavior of memristive devices within different types of the input voltage to demonstrate the flexibility and reliability of our work model. Our simulation results have been committed to prove the basic IV characteristics of such device, the switching behavior of this model for different applications (biological, neuromorphic…).
