OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS, there has been a groundswell of support for the use of redundancy in memory components. Redundancy may be the new innovation factor which allows bit density to continue growing at the traditional rate of 2X/year. Previous papers have described redundancy techniques for dynamic RAMS-' and other memory components3 where speed is not the primary goal. This paper will describe techniques utilized in a 40ns 16KX1 static RAM.ent technological factors and random run-to-run process defect dis…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
