Abstract
(EN)
Embodiments of the present invention include a family of multi-way switches that can be configured to output an input signal to any combination of n output signal lines. Certain embodiments of the present invention employ a memristive junction between the input signal and each output signal line, the state of which is configured by one or more control signal lines. The memristive junction between the input signal line and each output signal can be switched between a stable, low-conductance state and a high-conductance state. A wide variety of different types of multi-way switches may be fabricated according to various embodiments of the present invention.

Les modes de réalisation de la présente invention portent sur une famille de commutateurs multiposition qui peuvent être configurés pour délivrer un signal d'entrée à n'importe quelle combinaison de n lignes de signal de sortie. Certains modes de réalisation de la présente invention emploient une jonction memristive entre le signal d'entrée et chaque ligne de signal de sortie, dont l'état est configuré par une ou plusieurs lignes de signal de commande. La jonction memristive entre la ligne de signal d'entrée et chaque signal de sortie peut être commutée entre un état stable à basse conductance et un état à haute conductance. Une grande diversité de différents types de commutateurs multiposition peuvent être fabriqués selon divers modes de réalisation de la présente invention.
