Abstract

Cluster regeneration and amplification of signals in a one-device cell random-access memory is provided for low power operation without significant semiconductor chip area penalty by connecting a bootstrap circuit to a common point, with the switch or transistor at each of a group of cells being disposed between the common point and an associated storage capacitor. The group or cluster of cells is isolated by a cluster address transistor connected between the cluster and a bit/sense line.
