A simple floating mutator circuit for achieving transformations among memristor (MR), memcapacitor (MC), and meminductor (MI) emulations is newly designed in this brief by making use of varactor diode with variable capacitance. The transformation can be achieved by properly configuring the passive elements of the two preserved positions in the mutator circuit. The most attractive advantages of this mutator is the floating terminals without requirement of any mem-elements for transformation. The mutator topology is simple and suitable for integrated circuit design. Simulation and experimental results are presented to verify the practicability and flexibility of this new mutator.
