The effect of defects within a single cell of a static random access memory (SRAM) is examined. All major types of faults, including bridging, transistor stuck-open and stuck-on, are examined. A significant fraction of all faults cause high IDDQ values to be observed. Faults leading to inter-cell coupling are identified.
