The name memristor is formed from memory + resistor. The fundamental component it labels behaves like a resistor, but one whose value changes based on the integral of the current passing through it, hence, the memory aspect. Innovative company Knowm is making parts and services available, with a strong focus on machine learning.
Knowm’s memristors can be applied as a BEOL (back-end of line) CMOS process too, enabling what they hope will be a whole world of machine learning, memory, and other applications.
