Review and Classification of Gain Cell eDRAM Implementations

With the increasing requirement of a high-density, high-performance, low power alternative to traditional SRAM, Gain Cell (GC) embedded DRAMs have gained a renewed interest in recent years. Several industrial and academic publications have presented GC memory implementations for various target applications, including high-performance processor caches, wireless communication memories, and biomedical system storage. In this paper, we review and compare the recent publications, examining the design requirements and the implementation techniques that lead to achievement of the required design metrics of these applications.
