A physics-based compact model is developed to capture the essential resistive switching behaviors of conductive-bridge random access memory (CBRAM) under DC and AC operations. Three types of evolution modes of conductive filament correlated with material properties and operation schemes are modeled based on experimental observations. By modeling the temperature and electric-field effects as well as the electrical conduction, the model can well reproduce the DC and AC switching characteristics in different material stacks and operation modes. The calibrated model can be further implemented into SPICE to evaluate and optimize the array performance of CBRAM as a device-circuit-system co-design tool.
