|20150243348||NONVOLATILE MEMORY DEVICE - A nonvolatile memory device includes a word line, four or more bit lines, three or more MIS transistors having gate nodes thereof connected to the word line, the N-th (N: positive integer) one of the MIS transistors having two source/drain nodes thereof connected to the N-th and N+1-th ones of the bit lines, respectively, a sense circuit having two nodes and configured to amplify a difference between potentials of the two nodes, and a switch circuit configured to electrically couple the N-th and N+2-th ones of the bit lines to the two nodes of the sense circuit, respectively, and to electrically couple the N+1-th one of the bit lines to a fixed potential, for any numerical number N selected to detect single-bit data stored in the N-th and N+1-th ones of the MIS transistors.||08-27-2015|
|20120206960||NONVOLATILE SEMICONDUCTOR MEMORY DEVICE USING MIS TRANSISTOR - A nonvolatile semiconductor memory device includes an MIS transistor having nodes, a control circuit configured to apply a first set of potentials to the nodes to cause an irreversible change in transistor characteristics, to apply a second set of potentials to the nodes to cause a first current to flow through the MIS transistor in a first direction, and to apply the second set of potentials to the nodes to cause a second current to flow through the MIS transistor in a second direction opposite the first direction, and a sense circuit configured to produce a signal responsive to a difference between the first current and the second current.||08-16-2012|
|20090213650||MIS-TRANSISTOR-BASED NONVOLATILE MEMORY - A nonvolatile semiconductor memory device includes a latch circuit including a first inverter and a second inverter cross-coupled to each other, a source node of a MIS transistor of the first inverter and a source node of a MIS transistor of the second inverter being both coupled to a plate line, and a control circuit configured to apply a first potential to the plate line in a store mode to cause a change in threshold voltage to one of the MIS transistors, and configured to apply a second potential to the plate line in a power-on mode to cause the latch circuit to latch data responsive to the change in threshold voltage generated in the store mode, such that the data latched by the latch circuit in the power-on mode is automatically output to outside the nonvolatile semiconductor memory device upon power-on thereof.||08-27-2009|
|20090052229||MIS-TRANSISTOR-BASED NONVOLATILE MEMORY DEVICE WITH VERIFY FUNCTION - A nonvolatile semiconductor memory device includes a first latch to store data, a nonvolatile memory cell including two MIS transistors to store data as an irreversible change of transistor characteristics occurring in one of the two MIS transistors selected in response to the data stored in the first latch, a second latch to store data obtained by sensing a difference in the transistor characteristics between the two MIS transistors, a logic circuit to produce a signal indicative of comparison between the data of the first latch and the data of the second latch, and a control circuit configured to repeat a store operation storing data in the nonvolatile memory cell, a recall operation storing data in the second latch, and a verify operation producing the signal indicative of comparison until the signal indicates that the data of the first latch and the data of the second latch are the same.||02-26-2009|
