		Memory elements play a crucial role in the hardware design as parts of
		logical circuits which are able to remember a logical value and to hold it
		independently on the input for a defined period of time. Thanks to them we
		may work with an inner state in logical circuits, construct registers,
		synchronize combinational circuits, etc. 
		
		When generalizing the design of hardware to the many-valued logic, the
		question of many-valued memory elements becomes inevitable. In this paper
		we present a many-valued memory element which is based on a generalization
		of the R-S memory element known from the two-valued logic. We show that the
		circuit works correctly for finitely many logical values and this number
		may be arbitrary depending on the potentialities of the implementation. We
		also show that the structure of the memory element is independent on the
		number of the logical values.
		
		The memory element we present here is "level controlled".
