Process : ST 45nm
Tape-out Date : December 2008
Description : The SRAM Variability test chip is being designed to exercise memory and other 45nm blocks. SRAM experiments include bitline current measurements and WL/BL sweep capability, variation sensing and compensation circuits, dynamic read and write test structures to correlate with static metrics and wordline pulse generator to correlate required pulse widths with static metrics. Other experiments include parameter specific ring oscillators to characterize layout induced variability and ring oscillators with vias to the chip surface to test carbon nanotube delays.
