The significant development of memories with embedded on-board SRAM has been increasing tremendously for the current Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. The high performance and low power SRAM cells are critically important and play a vital role for the data computations in any IoT application. The SRAM Cells are generally important for the contemporary VLSI systems and applications. The on-board SRAM memory demand is increasing day by day with the additional requirements of less power consumption, improved stability, improved performance, and overall energy efficiency. This research work presents a High Performance and Low Power (HPLP) SRAM cell with 8 transistors. The presented cell is designed in CMOS technology and simulation was carried out using Cadence Virtuoso EDA tool. The suggested HPLP SRAM cell’s write power analysis confirms that 47% write power is reduced. The write ability has been improved and the write delay has also been improved by 24% for write operations. Furthermore, the HPLP cell is robust and stable in worse environmental conditions with range of temperature from -50oC to 150oC.
