1. 256 bit SRAM DESIGN: a) Read Delay (ns) 0.33 0.28 Write Delay (ns) 0.065 0.06

i. ii.

All 6T of 4/2 6/2 Inverter Nmos 4/2 Nmos Access 4/3 Inverter Pmos

I have chosen the case ii. The area for the 6T SRAM cell of Case ii: 4.6 * 5.05 = 22.725 b) Comparison of Architectures: The following observations are from the schematic simulations mimicking the load capacitances of the different Architectures. Read Delay (ns) 0.33 0.33 0.328 Write Delay (ns) 0.225 0.203 0.22

i. ii. iii.

One 644 Bit Two 324 Bit (2-1 Mux) Four 164 Bit (4-1 Mux)

Model: = 50.14 = 225.78 fF The elmore delay = 0.69 /2 = 3.9 ps

c) The Architecture chosen is 32 8 with 4 (2-1) Mux.

i. ii. iii.

The BIT BIT line bar time is 226 ps. Sense Amplifier delay is 58 ps. The write delay is less than the read delay.

Sizing: Sense Amplifier (Optimized) = 3um = 800nm = 800nm = 600nm = 600nm = 1um = 1um

Mux: (Read,Write) Mux has the sizing of W = 4um L = 200nm The write and the Precharge circuitry has the default sizing.

2. DECODER DESIGN: The pre decoding implementation is done with the 3 input NAND, 2 input NAND and 3 input NOR gates with a enable signal.

3. OUTPUT REGISTER: The D-FLIP FLOP (4 FF) using Transmission Gate is used at the output of the Sense Amplifier with the Clock Period of 3ns.

4. SRAM LAYOUT: The 256 bit SRAM Layout is done using the optimized 6T SRAM cell, Row Decoder, Write Circuitry, Read Circuitry, Column Muxes and the output Registers. Metal 1,2,3 are used for routing.
