This chapter is divided into three sections focusing on some memcapacitor-based applications. The first one discusses the mathematical analyses and design of resistive-less memcapacitor-based relaxation oscillators where different cases have been investigated and validated. Analytical expressions for the oscillation frequency, duty cycle, stored energy, and conditions of oscillation have been achieved with many numerical examples and circuit simulations. The second section discusses the boundary effect on the analysis and output behavior of memcapacitor-based oscillators compared to the previous case. The last section addresses the memcapacitor-bridge synapses with mathematical analysis, weight programming, and circuit simulations. © 2015, Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
