Abstract

Both open and folded segmented bit line architectures are described for dense dynamic random-access memory cells. The global bit line for open bit line cells is on the same pitch as the bit line segment and connects sense amplifiers on either end while the global bit line for folded bit line cells is on two times the bit line segment pitch connecting sense amplifiers on either end.
