Two circuit techniques are proposed to design a SDRAM which operates both at a double-data-rate (DDR) and a single-data-rate (SDR). The common/separated I/O scheme enables 2-bit prefetching under a DDR and interrupt operations under an SDR with half the number of data-bus lines otherwise needed. The SSTL/LVTTL-compatible input buffer allows a narrow setup/hold time. Furthermore, the three-size flexible column redundancy enhances the yield. To evaluate these techniques, a 256-Mb SDRAM has been designed assuming 0.16-/spl mu/m technology and simulated with 167-MHz operations.
