Abstract

We comparatively study the response times of a current-mode and a voltage-mode sense amplifier for the resistive loads used in MRAM. In order to limit the applied voltage below a critical value of 0.4V across the resistors, sense amplifiers with separate input/output nodes are selected. A systematic simulation study for the resistive load variations in range of 0.5 kΩ to 8.5kΩ using a 0.35μm-CMOS technology shows that the current-mode sense amplifier shows superior response time of at least 1.3nsec over the voltage-mode sense amplifier.
