An analytical model for performance yield of nanoscale SRAM accounting for the sense amplifier strobe signal

Abstract

This paper presents a model for the exact distribution of performance yield in an SRAM using order statistics for strobed and non-strobed sense amplifier (SA) implementations. Monte-Carlo simulation results validate the model, which offers a speedup in runtime of 3 to 4 orders of magnitude. Using the model, we quantify the potential benefits of using a non-strobed SA in different types of system architectures.
