New functionalities of reactance-less memristor based oscillators are discussed which arise when two elementary oscillators are connected. It is shown that the system of coupled memristor based oscillators can be used for converting analog and analog-digital signals into binary pulse sequences. The approach to control the thresholds in memristor based oscillators is discussed. Standard control approach in memristor based oscillators is the exploitation of input signal to drive the rate of change in the state of the memristor. In contrast, the main idea of the considered controlling approach is to send the input signal not directly to the memristor device but to the comparator circuit and as result to control oscillator circuit behavior by change of interval of memristor resistor variation. The capabilities of coupled memristor based oscillators with control thresholds are sufficient for constructing the simple circuit elements of oscillatory computing architectures.
