Silicon on insulator (SOI) technology is used to fabricate a dynamic random access memory (DRAM) capable of low voltage operation. The device uses a body-pulsed sense amplifier and a body-driven equalizer to accelerate low-voltage speed while partially-depleted and fully depleted transistors are used to enhance on-state current. The device's performance is evaluated experimentally.
