We propose a static memory architecture in which each bit consists of a single two-terminal device that is bistable in current. Current-mode operation of the memory array removes the need for cell-isolation transistors, thus, allowing huge increases in density over inverter-based SRAM and capacitor-based DRAM. Low power consumption and fast read/write speeds are ensured by taking advantage of the exponential nature of the memory's current-voltage characteristic.
