Title LOW-VOLTAGE SEMICONDUCTOR MEMORY
Abstract Provided is memory which is capable of dynamically changing memory cell bit reliability and of switching the operating mode so as to accommodate process variations, thereby reducing the operating voltage. The memory is provided with a mode control line selection circuit for dividing mode control lines into word units and using control line selection signals and global control signals to control the mode control lines divided into word units, and a word line selection circuit for dividing the word lines that control the conduction of switching units into word units and using word line selection signals and global word signals to control the word lines divided into word units. The mode control line switching circuit is used to switch between a 1 bit / 1 cell mode and a 1 bit / n cell mode in word units. When reading out data, the word line selection circuit is used to select the word line of the memory cell on the side of the word having the highest operating margin from among the memory cells for linked word units used in the 1 bit / n cell mode.
