write time, but at the expense of ~30% increase in area and average leakage power. Thus, 8T-NWRAM is a viable alternative to 10T-NWRAM for performance vs area/leakage design requirement. We also study the impact of supply noise induced clock jitter on NWRAM circuits and propose adequate design margin to ensure bitcell stability.
Low-area energy-efficient security primitives are key building blocks for enabling end-to-end content protection, user authentication, and consumer confidentiality in the IoT world that is estimated to surpass 50billion smart and connected devices by 2020. This paper describes design approaches that blend energy-efficient circuit techniques with optimal… (More)
