Summary: 
Memristor is drawing more and more attraction nowadays after HP Laboratory announced its invention. Since then many researchers are taking efforts to find its applications in various areas of the information technology. Among the important applications, one of the interesting issues is the research on memristor circuits. To put forward such research, there is an urgent demand to establish a memristor SPICE model, such that people could conduct SPICE simulation to obtain the performance of the memristor circuits under their investigation. This paper reports our efforts to meet the urgent demand. Based on the memristor device fabrication technology parameters, as well as the theoretical description on memristor, we first propose memristor SPICE models, then verify the effectiveness of the proposed models by applying it to some memristor circuits. Simulation results are satisfactory.
