In this letter, the first reactance-less oscillator is introduced. By using memristor, the oscillator can be fully implemented on-chip without the need of any capacitors or inductors, which results in an area-efficient fully integrated solution. The concept of operation of the proposed oscillator is explained and detailed mathematical analysis is introduced. Closed-form expressions for the oscillation frequency and oscillation conditions are derived. Finally, the derived equations are verified
