Memristor-based reactance-less oscillator

Mohamed Zidan, et al., "Memristor-based reactance-less oscillator." Electronics letters 47,  (22) 2011, 1220.

The first reactance-less oscillator is introduced. By using a memristor, the oscillator can be fully implemented on-chip without the need for any capacitors or inductors, which results in an area-efficient fully integrated solution. The concept of operation of the proposed oscillator is explained and detailed mathematical analysis is introduced. Closed-form expressions for the oscillation frequency and oscillation conditions are derived. Finally, the derived equations are verified with circuit simulations showing excellent agreement.
