07542345 is referenced by 192 patents and cites 266 patents.

There are many inventions described herein as well as many aspects and embodiments of those inventions, for example, multi-bit memory cell and circuitry and techniques for reading, writing and/or operating a multi-bit memory cell (and memory cell array having a plurality of such memory cells) having one or more electrically floating body transistors in which an electrical charge is stored in the body region of the electrically floating body transistor. The multi-bit memory cell stores more than one data bit (for example, two, three, four, five, six, etc.) and/or more than two data states (for example, three, four, five, six, etc. data or logic states. Notably, the memory cell array may comprise a portion of an integrated circuit device, for example, logic device (for example, a microprocessor) or a portion of a memory device (for example, a discrete memory).
