A CDE Definition
A capacitor made of crystals that can retain a polarized state, making it useful for storing binary data (0 and 1). It differs from a regular capacitor, which will polarize when electricity is applied, but does not retain the state when the voltage is reduced to zero. See capacitor, F-RAM and ferroelectric.
