Novel Memristor Emulators using Fully Balanced VDBA and Grounded Capacitor

Abstract

In this paper, grounded and floating decremental/incremental memristor emulator circuits are realized using fully balanced voltage differencing buffered amplifier (FB-VDBA) and grounded capacitor. These proposed configurations are simpler in design as compared to most of the designs available in the literature. The pinched Hysteresis loops are maintained up to 1 MHz frequency. The decremental to incremental memristor emulator and vice versa can be easily attained by slightly modifying the circuits. Proposed designs of memristor emulator circuits are simulated using TSMC 0.18 µm CMOS process technology parameters of Mentor Graphics Eldo tool. The proposed decremental floating memristor emulator circuit has been embedded in the design of universal biquad filter to evaluate its performance.
