The memristor discovery board is a low-cost programmable interface for exploring memristor behavior. The board plugs into the popular Digilent Analog Discovery 2 (sold separately), an affordable ‘all in one’ multi-function instrument. Download the Memristor Discovery User Manual for more information.
Memristor Discovery Open-Source Software
Software for the Memristor Discovery board is open-source and available at https://github.com/knowm/memristor-discovery. Updates are always free of charge. The Memristor Discovery app is a Java application for running memristor experiments of “applications” on the Memristor Discovery board. It is designed to be cross-platform, meaning it runs on the latest versions of MacOS, Debian-based Linux and Windows 10. Running Memristor-Discovery requires Java and the Digilent waveforms Framework to be installed on your system (see previous software link for amore details).

The Analog Discovery 2 was designed for students in typical university-based circuits and electronics class. Its features and specifications were obtained from feedback from professors at several universities and include USB control and power, small and portable form factor, robustness to withstand student abuse, and low-cost.
Analog switches are used to programmatically couple devices to the MD’s waveform generator and oscilloscopes. DIP IC extraction tool included.
