The refresh redistributes the charge between the gates back to the original state - the dynamic leakage mechanism between the gates does not deplete the total charge on the gate pair, so total charge does not need to be "replenished".

Great, we finally see the details, but not enough nit and grit. For example, the refresh must depend on how much charge is on the bottom floating gate. And programming the top floating gate must pull some charge off the bottom floating gate as well, which must be replenished.

I read about this team's research on the IEEE website and asked them to tell us more about their research and key findings. Happily, they obliged. Hope you find this of interest.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
