Writing/non-writing of composite conducting polymer (polypyrrole/poly(3-hexylthiophene)) have been investigated using composite conducting polymer. Writing has been made in two processes: pretreatment and dropping ethanol. The unipolar signal (10 Vp-p, 10 Hz+5 VDC) has worked as a circuit signal. The conductivity at the path of the composite conducting polymer network has depended on the passed signal. It was confirmed using the Y-type and H-type composite conducting polymer. It has been confirmed that rewriting of composite conducting polymer is possible to develop a memory or a neural network device of conducting polymer.
