memory cell

[′mem·rē ‚sel]
(computer science)
A single storage element of a memory, together with associated circuits for storing and reading out one bit of information.

memory cell

One bit of memory. In dynamic RAM memory, a cell is made up of one transistor and one capacitor. In static RAM memory, a cell is made up of about five transistors. See memory chip.

In addition, they use many memory cells for classification process.
Comparing the results in Figures 6 and 7(a), it can be concluded that due to nanometre dimensions, flash memory cells are much less sensitive to the proton effects with MeV energies than the protons with energies in the keV field.
With direct write technology, PCM does not require any erase operation prior to writing data into the memory cell which is similar to DRAM.
The complementary GaAs E-JFET memory cell offers the prospect of SEU immunity with further research of device scaling and resistive decoupling in memory cells.
Identification of Kv1.3, a regulator of T effector memory cell activity, on lymphocytes in sIBM patients provides support for the potential treatment of this disease with Kv1.3 Therapeutics's drug therapy, dalazatide, a highly selective and a near irreversible inhibitor of the Kv1.3 ion channel.
The team led by Professor Tetsuo Endoh, Director of the Center for Innovative Integrated Electronic Systems (CIES), focused on reducing the memory cell area of STT-MRAMs in order to lower manufacturing costs, making them competitive with conventional semiconductor memories like dynamic random access memory (DRAM).
The current-mode analog memory cell proposed in this paper stores charge onto the floating gate of MFG1 and MFG2 transistors in order to set a given current [I.sub.mfg] and [I.sub.out], (Figure 6).
The stored charge determines the value of transistor threshold voltage, making the memory cell either "on" or "off" at readout.
TouchMatrix[TM] is a 300-mm full-wafer contact probe card for NAND Flash devices down to sub-32-nm process nodes, including those integrating 3-bit and 4-bit memory cell architectures.
<p>"They are going to have to be able to aggressively shrink the memory cell in order for it to be cost competitive with NOR," Wong said.
Combining a 4F2 physical memory cell area and 2-bit per cell memory technology, the flash memory has 2F2 cell density, where "F" refers to the minimum device feature size.
