A 1 kb magnetoresistive random access memory (MRAM) is demonstrated with a 0.4 × 1.2μm2 magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) and 0.18 μm complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology. In this study, a double MTJ, which is designed to have a larger signal margin than a conventional MTJ, is used. The uniformity of resistance for a double MTJ is comparable to that of a single MTJ and is expected to be better than a single MTJ if process conditions are optimized. The magnetic design of the MTJ provided a good astroid curve and resulted in 90% of bits working towards a relatively broad range of bit-line voltage and word-line voltage.
