WO/2004/057676 is referenced by 12 patents.

The electric device (1, 100) has a body (2, 102) having a resistor (7, 107) comprising a phase change material being changeable between a first phase and a second phase. The resistor (7, 107) has a first electrical resistance when the phase change material is in the first phase and a second electrical resistance, different from the first electrical resistance, when the phase change material is in the second phase. The body (2, 102) further has a heating element (6, 106) being able to conduct a current for enabling a transition from the first phase to the second phase. The heating element (6, 106) is arranged in parallel with the resistor (7, 107).
