A frequency synthesiser comprises a voltage controlled oscillator, VCO, having means for fine tuning the oscillator frequency and switchable capacitive elements for coarse tuning the oscillator frequency. First comparison means are provided for comparing ...
A semiconductor memory, for example of the ROM type, has columns of memory cells with a bitline for each column connected to the cells of the column. The bitlines are connected via multiplexers to the input of a sense amplifier. Before column selection, t...
|5500823||Memory defect detection arrangement|
In a static random access memory made up of six-transistor memory cells arranged in rows and columns, an arrangement for detecting open circuit or "soft" defects in the individual inverters of a memory cell includes lowering the supply voltage of a cell u...
|5495382||Contents addressable memory|
A contents addressable memory comprising an array of contents addressable memory cells arranged in rows and columns, each row of the array having a respective case between address bit values of a data word or words to be retrieved from the memory and bit ...
|5467312||Random access memory|
A current sensing read arrangement for a static random access memory in which critical nodes in the sensing arrangement are equalised before read-out commences, and in which differential outputs are applied to a gating arrangement which terminates the rea...
