Concept of Floating Body Cell and Its Operational Principle
Pages 42

The operational principle and the features of floating body cell (FBC) are described in comparison with those of the one-transistor and one-capacitor dynamic random access memory cell. The method of selective write realizes one of the key characteristics, bringing about a trade-off between the selectivity and the bit line disturb which is necessary to be considered in designing the memory using FBC. The difference between FBCs on partially depleted silicon-on-insulator and on fully depleted silicon-on-insulator is summarized. Finally, various write and read methods are explained and compared.
