The biristor is a device that has interesting I-V characteristics. When it is current driven the reference device exhibits neural spiking. This neural spiking is characterized by a differing voltage at a steady current. If all of the devices on the chip that was designed exhibit this neural spiking behavior it has the potential of being used as a nueromorphic chip given its layout. The other method of operation is one in which a hysteresis loop is formed. This hysteresis loop can be used for hardware based encryption. This is because the device acts differently to the same stimulus based ...
