In this paper the authors present a Six-Transistor (6T) Single-Ended Static Random Access Memory (SE-SRAM) bitcell with an isolated read-port, suitable for low-Vdd and low-power embedded applications. The proposed bitcell has a better Static Noise Margin (SNM) and write-ability compared to a standard 6T bitcell and equivalent to an 8T bitcell. An 8Kbit SRAM module with the proposed and standard 6T bitcells is simulated, including full blown parasitics using BPTM, 65nm CMOS technology node to evaluate and compare different performance parameters.
