Summary of "A new bipolar RRAM selector based on anti-parallel connected diodes for crossbar applications."

Crossbar arrays are the most promising application of a resistive random access memory (RRAM) device for achieving high density memory. However, cross-talk interference in the crossbar array limits the increase in the integration density. In this paper, the combination of two anti-parallel connected diodes and a bipolar RRAM cell is proposed to suppress the sneak current in a crossbar array with anti-parallel connected diodes as the selector for the bipolar RRAM. By using the anti-parallel connected diodes as a selector, the sneak current can be effectively suppressed and the high density crossbar array of more than 1 Mb can be realized as estimated by the 1/2V read voltage scheme. These results indicate that anti-parallel connected diodes can be used as a bipolar selector and have great potential for high density bipolar RRAM crossbar array applications.

An operation for the continuous emptying of ascitic fluid into the venous system. Fluid removal is based on intraperitoneal and intrathoracic superior vena cava pressure differentials and is performed via a pressure-sensitive one-way valve connected to a tube traversing the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall to the neck where it enters the internal jugular vein and terminates in the superior vena cava. It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.
