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.

Then last year Hitachi and Renesas Technology developed a phase-change film made of oxygen-doped GeSbTe (germanium-antimony-tellurium), and succeeded in fabricating prototype memory cells with lower power requirements.
Also, flash memory cells degrade and become unreliable after being rewritten about 100,000 times.
Davis says the trick is to see that each memory cell starts out filled with just enough charge so that an alpha-gnerated discharge even will essentially empty it.
By leveraging the combination of our patented memory cell technology and our design team, UMC's expertise in SONOS technology and its process development team, the efforts and decision from both sides have proven fruitful, demonstrated by the first pass silicon success of our first product.
All members of the 4070 Series family have complete DC parametric test capabilities, including Flash memory cell testing, capacitance versus voltage (CV) measurement and ring oscillator evaluation.
Because the memory cell uses only a single transistor, Z-RAM is typically twice the density of embedded DRAM and 5 times the density of embedded SRAM, yet requires no exotic materials, no extra mask steps, and no new physics.
