Abstract

The circuit shown in Fig. 1 provides for the sensing of data stored in a selected cell of a Harper cell array matrix with improved performance and circuit stability over a typical prior-art scheme, as illustrated in Fig. 2. The proposed circuit represents basically a cascode current sensing amplifier with only one circuit being required to drive each data output circuit.
