Abstract

Sense amplifiers are used for detecting stored bits in memory cells; they accept the voltage level from the memory cell as input and provide an output corresponding with the logic levels of the external circuit. The circuit uses a differential mode amplifier to amplify the bit line signal and provide required output. The circuit works at a supply of 1V. The simulations were conducted using the BSIM 4.4 MOSFET model. The voltage swing needed for operations is significantly lower than existing designs. It also offers superior performance in terms of power and delay.
