This paper presents a new macro model for programmable metallization cell (PMC) devices developed using PSPICE and incorporating only common circuit elements used in all SPICE-based programs. The model encompasses both pseudo DC and transient conditions and comprises an equivalent parasitic circuit of the device element and a circuit which represents the complex dynamic operation of the device.
