Gateless Memristor Arrays have the advantage of offering high density systems however; their main limitation is the current leakage or the sneak path. Several techniques have been used to address this problem, mainly concentrating on spatial and temporal solutions in setting a dynamic threshold. In this paper, a novel approach is used in terms of utilizing channel estimation and detection theory, primarily building on OFDM concepts of pilot settings, to actually benefit from prior read values in estimating the noise level and utilizing it to further enhance the reliability and accuracy of the read out process.
