Despite that there are many works discussing the parameter variations in 6T SRAM bit cells, most of them are based on Monte-Carlo simulations. Basic performance indices, such as cell current, are rarely obtained from measurements. In this paper, we present a simple circuit design to directly measure the cell current. To explore the physical location dependency, the bit cells are selected at the boundary and in the interior of a sub-array, and for each bit cell, the cell currents are measured by… CONTINUE READING
