The development of devices that can modulate their conductance under the application of electrical stimuli constitutes a fundamental step towards the realization of synaptic connectivity in neural networks. Optimization of synaptic functionality requires the understanding of the analogue conductance update under different programming conditions. Moreover, properties of physical devices such as bounded conductance values and state-dependent modulation should be considered as they affect storage capacity and performance of the network. This work provides a study of the conductance dynamics produced by identical pulses as a function of the programming parameters in an HfO 2 memristive device. The application of a phenomenological model that considers a soft approach to the conductance boundaries allows the identification of different operation regimes and to quantify conductance modulation in the …
