Title (EN) MULTI-LEVEL MEMORY CELL SENSING
(FR) DÉTECTION DE CELLULE DE MÉMOIRE MULTINIVEAU
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A multi-level cell memory device performs a read by providing a stepped voltage waveform on a wordline, and comparing cell currents to a substantially constant reference current. Prior to the application of the stepped voltage waveform, the wordline may share charge with another circuit node.
(FR)L'invention concerne un dispositif de mémoire de cellule multiniveau effectuant une lecture par la production d’une forme d'onde de tension étagée sur une ligne de mots et la comparaison des courants de cellules à un courant de référence sensiblement constant. Avant l'application de la forme d'onde de tension étagée, la ligne de mots peut partager une charge avec un autre nœud de circuit.
