Abstract
(EN) A semiconductor device with a novel structure in which stored data can be held even when power is not supplied and there is no limitation on the number of times of writing. In the semiconductor device, a plurality of memory cells each including a first transistor, a second transistor, and a capacitor is provided in matrix and a wiring (also called a bit line) for connecting one memory cell to another memory cell and a source or drain electrode of the first transistor are electrically connected to each other through a source or drain electrode of the second transistor. Accordingly, the number of wirings can be smaller than that in the case where the source or drain electrode of the first transistor and the source or drain electrode of the second transistor are connected to different wirings. Thus, the degree of integration of the semiconductor device can be increased.
(FR) La présente invention a trait à un dispositif à semi-conducteur doté d'une nouvelle structure permettant de conserver les données stockées y compris lorsqu'aucune alimentation n'est fournie et de ne pas être limité quant au nombre d'écritures. Dans le dispositif à semi-conducteur, une pluralité de cellules de mémoire incluant chacune un premier transistor, un second transistor et un condensateur est prévue dans une matrice et un câblage (également appelé une ligne de binaire) permettant de connecter une cellule de mémoire à une autre cellule de mémoire et une électrode de source ou de drain du premier transistor sont électriquement connectés l'un à l'autre au moyen d'une électrode de source ou de drain du second transistor. Par conséquent, le nombre de câblages peut être réduit par rapport au cas où l'électrode de source ou de drain du premier transistor et l'électrode de source ou de drain du second transistor sont connectées à différents câblages. De la sorte, le degré d'intégration du dispositif à semi-conducteur peut être augmenté.
