The Meminductor: A New Circuit Element

Posted by in category: innovation

Researchers at Texas A&M University have discovered a novel circuit element referred to as a meminductor that led to a significant breakthrough in circuit elements.

In an electrical circuit, circuit elements play a crucial role in managing the flow of electricity. The resistor, capacitor, and inductor are the traditional circuit elements, while the memristor and memcapacitor are the more recent additions discovered in the past 15 years. These newer components, known as “mem-” versions of the classical elements, have different voltage and current characteristics that are influenced by previous voltage or current values over time, giving them memory-like properties.

Dr. H. Rusty Harris, an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, has made a significant breakthrough in circuit elements with the discovery of a new component called the meminductor.
