Leakage Immune 9T-SRAM Cell in Sub-threshold Region

Priya Gupta, Anu Gupta, Abhijit Asati


The paper presents a variability-aware modified 9T SRAM cell. In comparison to 6T SRAM cell the proposed  cell achieves 1.3× higher read-SNM and 1.77× higher write-SNM with 79.6% SINM (static current noise margin) distribution at the expense of 14.7× lower WTI (write trip current) at 0.4 V power supply voltage, while maintaining similar stability in hold mode. Thus, comparative analysis exhibits that the proposed design has a significant improvement, thereby achieving high cell stability at 45nm technology.
