Gain - Cell embedded DRAM (GC-DRAM) has latterly been confessed as conceivably replaced to conventional SRAM. While GC- e DRAM potentially allow for high -balance , low- outflow, low- voltage, and 2 - focussed verdict, its modest priority time permit occasional, power - hungry renew cycles. The disadvantages are further strengthen at ascend inventions, where expanding sub threshold leakage currents and decreased in - cell storage capacitances results in faster data deterioration. In this project, we present a novel 4T GC- e DRAM bit cell that utilizes an internal feedback contraption to remarkably increase the data retention time in scaled CMOS technologies. A 2 kb memory macro was implemented in a low power 65nm CMOS technology, displaying an over 3× improvement in retention time over the best previous publication at this node.
