Memristors are being considered as a promising emerging device able to introduce new paradigms in both data storage and computing. In this paper the authors introduce the concept of a quasi-ideal experimental device that emulates the fundamental behavior of a memristor based on an electro- mechanical organization. By using this emulator, results about the experimental implementation of an unconventional material implication-based data-path equivalent to the i-4004 are presented and experimentally demonstrated. The use of the proposed quasi-ideal device allows the evaluation of this new computing paradigm, based on the resistance domain, without incorporating the disturbance of process and cycle to cycle variabilities observed in real nowadays devices that cause a limit in yield and behavior.

Memristors are considered a promising emerging device that may improve some specific applications, like memories, or make feasible new ones, mainly alternative computing architectures. However, it is not a mature technology and their characteristics can vary significantly depending on their structures. Also, variability and reliability might suppose an important issue in some applications. In this paper, a chalcogenide memristor is studied and their main parameters are extracted. Then, it's discused how their properties can affect two applications: a memory circuit and a digital computing alternative, the logic implication technique.
