—Memristor is firstly published by L.Chua in 1971. It is derived from relationship between charge and flux. Thus, memristor take its place as fourth passive circuit element with resistor, inductor and capacitor. After it is physically realization in 2008 by S. Williams and his teammates, interest in memristor and studies about it quite increase. PWL (PieceWise Linear) memristor model is one of the memristor modeling style. This model proposes a new equivalent memristor model by linearizing I-V characteristic of memristor. Linearization process may vary from study to study. In this paper, we suggest a new PWL memristor model and its equivalent analog circuit. The proposed model in this paper is independent from frequency. The results obtained by using this model are sufficiently compatible.
