SRAM bit cell is the basic building block of SRAM caches.
* the input voltage at which a bit cell can be programmed and erased, and
* the charge held in a bit cell after a write operation.
This shows that the variation in timing of the bit cell latch for different input variants is marginal.

"We create a slightly smaller bit cell than what's standard," Campbell explained, "and we 'color' it by making the mark darker or lighter, in one of eight ratios of light to dark.
Sidense's patented one-transistor bit cell also provides many advantages in security and reliability when compared to other types of non-volatile memory.
This early engagement partnership will help accelerate adoption of UMC's next generation technology platform and provide a predictable roadmap for enhancements of key IP structures such as memory bit cells.
