We propose an asymmetric-MOSFET-based six-transistor (6 T) SRAM cell to alleviate the conflicting requirements of read and write operations. The source-to-drain and drain-to-source characteristics of access transistors are optimized to improve writability without sacrificing read stability. The proposed technique improves the writability by 9%-11%, with iso read stability being compared with a conventional 6 T SRAM cell based on symmetric-MOSFET access transistors in 45-nm technology.
