Memristor Circuit Modelling by Volterra Series

Ronald Tetzlaff

Institut für Grundlagen der Elektrotechnik und Elektronik, TU Dresden

Since the discovery in 2007 of Stanley Williams and his team at HP Labs, large efforts has been spent to the development of new devices. Memristors will be considered for nonvolatile memory devices, logic gates, neuromorphic circuits and new applications. Although recent investigations demonstrate that memristor circuits will play an important role in the development and implementation of new highly efficient technical solutions, the derivation of memristor models and exploration of memristor circuit dynamics is still restricted to certain cases. Obviously, the availability of a mathematical framework capable to capture the dynamics of memristor circuits would strongly support their application in various systems. A systematic approach allowing the calculation of current and voltage in memristor circuits based on the application of Volterra series will be introduced in this contribution. The accuracy of the solutions obtained by applying the proposed method is demonstrated through different case studies.

Brief Bio:

Ronald Tetzlaff is a Full Professor of Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering at the Technische Universität Dresden, Germany. His scientific interests include problems in the theory of signals and systems, stochastic processes, physical fluctuation phenomena, system modelling, system identification, Volterra systems, Cellular Nonlinear Networks, and Memristive Systems. From 1999 to 2003 Ronald Tetzlaff was Associate Editor of the IEEE, Transactions on Circuits and Systems: part I. He was "Distinguished Lecturer" of the IEEE CAS Society (2001-2002). He is a member of the scientific committee of different international conferences. He was the chair of the 7t IEEE International Workshop on Cellular Neural Networks and their Applications (CNNA 2002), of the 18th IEEE Workshop on Nonlinear Dynamics of Electronic Systems (NDES 2010), of the 5th International Workshop on Seizure Prediction (IWSP 2011) and of the 21st European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design (ECCTD 2013). Ronald Tetzlaff is in the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Circuit Theory and Applications since 2007 and he is also in the Editorial Board of the AEÜ - International Journal of Electronics and Communications since 2008. He serves as a reviewer for several journals and for the European Commission. From 2005 to 2007 he was the chair of the IEEE Technical Committee Cellular Neural Networks & Array Computing. He is a member of the Informationstechnische Gesellschaft (ITG) and the German Society of Electrical Engineers and of the German URSI Committee.
