In this paper we computes the Static Noise Margin , Power consumption of 6T SRAM at different voltage supply and temperature. Further, the Simulation of various Waveforms of the 6T SRAM have been presented. SNM is present in SRAM cell which is effect the stability in read operation of the 6T SRAM cells. SRAM cell stability analysis is a based on Static Noise Margin (SNM) investigation when in read mode, although many memory errors may occur during read operations. In this paper we investigate the SRAM cell SNM during read operations analyzing various alternatives to improve cell stability in this mode. We show that it is possible to improve cell stability during read operations while reducing word line voltage by SNM.
