ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 17 -- Silicon Storage Technology, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,354,864) developed by Hieu Van Tran, San Jose, Calif., Sang Thanh Nguyen, Union City, Calif., and Hung Quoc Nguyen, Fremont, Calif., for a "sense amplifier for low voltage high speed sensing."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A memory system includes a sense amplifier for detecting content of data memory cells by comparison with a voltage stored in a reference cell. The sense amplifier may comprise a comparator, first and second load circuits, and a low impedance circuit. A first input of the comparator is coupled to the low impedance circuit and a reference voltage node. A second input of the comparator is coupled to a data voltage node. The first load circuit loads a reference cell coupled to the reference voltage node. The second load circuit loads a data cell coupled to the data voltage node."
The patent application was filed on Oct. 31, 2011 (13/286,166). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,354,864&OS=8,354,864&RS=8,354,864
