Abstract?A general analysis of conventional high-speed, linearpassive, binary, READ-only stores is performed by the application of the scattering-matrix formalism. It is found that for a broad class of cases, which include most READ-only stores that have been discussed in the literature, the maximum transmission of power from a word driver to a sense amplifier is one divided by the number of bits stored in the memory. Other types of stores are considered that do not suffer from such a severe power degradation, but these appear to be pattern-sensitive.
Index Terms?Limits of operation, linear-passive memory, READ-Only stores, scattering-matrix formalism, sneak paths.
