Abstract

There is a constant push to reduce power consumption and increase speed in transistor memory devices. The goal of this project is to improve Allegro MicroSystems’ current Static Random Access Memory technology by designing and implementing a new sense amplifier. The final design is latch based and uses positive feedback to quickly display data at the output, which stops static current flow and dramatically reduces power consumption. Additionally a three-dimensional LED structure was designed and built to display a series of letters, characters or visual effects.
