Abstract: NMOS traditionally has been the dominant MOS technology. Relative to CMOS, NMOS has been a higherspeed, higher-power technology with lower cost and higher functional density. And CMOS has been relegated to functions in which its noise immunity, tolerance to wide power supply variations, or very Idw Power consumption warranted its use. Recently, however, a series of CMOS static RAMs has been introduced which, while maintaining the CMOS power advantage, also rivals the NMOS counterparts in both speed and densit…
