  • Patent number: 10878892
    Abstract: Various implementations described herein may refer to an integrated circuit using discharging circuitries for bit lines. In one implementation, an integrated circuit may include a memory array having memory cells, where the memory cells are arranged into columns and configured to be accessed using bit line pairs. The integrated circuit may also include discharging circuitries to selectively discharge the bit line pairs, where a respective discharging circuitry is coupled to a negative supply voltage node of a respective column of memory cells. The respective discharging circuitry may discharge a bit line pair of the respective column to a first voltage when the bit line pair is selected for a memory operation, and may discharge the bit line pair of the respective column to a second voltage when the bit line pair is not selected for a memory operation, where the second voltage is greater than the first voltage.
