The term Memtransistor, a portmanteau of memristor and transistor, (and no relation to MEMS transistors), is generally used to describe a class of proposed and experimental hybrid memristor-transistors. In general it refers to multi terminal (two-terminal and greater) hybrid memristor-transistive devices and models which attempt to exhibit memristive switching effects. Models primarily look to leverage the strengths of non-volatile memory for advanced neuromorphic computing and architectures.
