For the particular case of digital memories, speed has great importance taking into account that the success of a high-performance microprocessor depends greatly on how fast data are obtained and sent to memory. However, GaAs presents some problems when implementing memories, mainly due to its leaky characteristics and the small output logic swing compared to that produced in MOS devices. In this paper, novel architectures are proposed in order to overcome these problems. As a result, different designs have been implemented for 2- and 5-kbit ROMs, and for a 14-kbit DRAM.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/45094||Source:||Records of the IEEE International Workshop on Memory Technology, Design and Testing, p. 103-108|
