    This study examines the effect of crosstalk on the operations of DRAMs that are implemented in deep submicron technology, 0.18 µm. An extensive simulation revealed that the coupling between word lines and between bit lines alter the cell contents during reading and writing operations as well as retention of the different cells The effect is more likely when the poly instead of aluminum is used. Coupling between bit and word lines did not have such serious outcome.
