This work presents a flux-controlled memristor structure employing a Current-Controlled Current Differencing Transconductance Amplifier (CCCDTA) with a grounded capacitor. The proposed emulator’s invariant and variant parts can be safely adjustable, showing promising characteristics of up to 1.5 MHz operating frequency. Furthermore, there is no need for an additional circuit, switching mechanism or changing the circuit topology for the changing of operation modes. To justify the performance of the emulator with incremental and decremental mode operations, a Monte Carlo and temperature analysis are validated using TSMC 0.18 µm technology under a symmetrical supply voltage of ±0.9 V. Furthermore, the workability of the proposed circuit is tested with commercial elements such as ALD1116, AD844 and LM13700. When compared with other studies, the presented emulator circuit demonstrates promising performance in various features.
