To help overcome limits to the density and speed of conventional SRAMs, we have developed a five-transistor SRAM cell. The newly developed CMOS five-transistor SRAM cell uses one word-line and one bit-line during read/write operation. This cell retains its data with leakage current and positive feedback without refresh cycle. The new cell size is 18% smaller than a conventional six-transistor SRAM cell using same design rules. Simulation result in standard 0.25 Â¿m CMOS technology shows purposed cell has correct operation during read/write and idle mode. The average delay of new cell is 20% smaller than a six-transistor SRAM cell.
