A Dependable SRAM with 7T/14T Memory Cells

This paper proposes a novel dependable SRAM with 7T/14T memory cells, and introduces a new concept, “quality of a bit (QoB)” for it. The proposed SRAM has three modes: a normal mode, highspeed mode, and dependable mode, and dynamically scales its reliability, power and speed by combining two memory cells for one-bit information (i.e. 14 T/bit). By carrying… (More)
