Abstract : A discussion is presented of the effects of a distributed power supply layer on the operation of a neuristor device. Equations are derived which approximates the operating characteristics of a neuristor based on a generalized negativeresistance phenomenon propagating by means of carrier diffusion. The results and the theory are discussed from the standpoint of limiting factors controlling neuristor stability and propagation velocity in silicon. (Author)
