Nonvolatile Magneto-Electric Random Access Memory Circuit with Burst Writing and Back-to-Back Reads
by Pedram Khalili Amiri, Richard Dorrance, Dejan Marković, Kang L. Wang
Abstract:
Voltage controlled magneto-electric tunnel junctions (MEJ) and associated memory devices are described which provide efficient high speed switching of non-volatile magnetic random access memory (MeRAM) devices at high cell densities with multiple word access mechanisms, including a burst mode write of multiple words, and a back-to-back read of two words in consecutive clock cycles. In at least one preferred embodiment, these accesses are performed in a manner that prevents any possibility of a read disturbance arising.
