Random-access memory arrays require fast writing ability when used for cache memory applications. Usually this fast writing is achieved by powering up the write circuits at the expense of high chip power dissipation. In some cache array designs, as much as 20 to 30 percent of the total chip power is consumed by the write circuitry.
