Recently researchers at Hewlett-Packard have announced the discovery of a new material having resistance switching characteristics and which has been characterized as a fourth fundamental circuit component called the “memristor”[1]. It is proposed to combine such memristors with operational amplifier circuitry and fixed resistor elements so as to form a programmable signal processor capable of selective transmission and multiplexing of multiple signals for applications in communications and programmable drive waveform control.
