Title (EN) SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF SEMI-CONDUCTEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A conventional DRAM needs to be refreshed at an interval of several tens of milliseconds to hold data, which results in large power consumption. In addition, a transistor therein is frequently turned on and off; thus, deterioration of the transistor is also a problem. These problems become significant as the memory capacity increases and transistor miniaturization advances. Another problem is that an increase in memory capacity leads to an increase in the area, despite an attempt at integration through advancement of transistor miniaturization. A transistor is provided which includes an oxide semiconductor and has a trench structure including a trench for a gate electrode and a trench for element isolation. In addition, a plurality of memory elements each including the transistor having a trench structure and including an oxide semiconductor is stacked in a semiconductor device, whereby the circuit area of the semiconductor device can be reduced.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à une mémoire vive dynamique (DRAM, Dynamic Random Access Memory) classique qui a besoin d'être rafraîchie selon un intervalle de temps de plusieurs dizaines de millisecondes pour conserver les données, ce qui entraîne une importante consommation d'énergie. De plus, un transistor agencé à l'intérieur de cette dernière est fréquemment mis en marche et coupé ; ainsi, la détérioration du transistor constitue également un problème. Ces problèmes deviennent significatifs à mesure que la capacité de la mémoire augmente et la miniaturisation du transistor se développe. Un autre problème est qu'une augmentation de la capacité de la mémoire conduit à une augmentation de l'aire malgré une tentative d'intégration par le développement de la miniaturisation du transistor. L'invention porte sur un transistor qui comprend un semi-conducteur à base d'oxyde et présente une structure de tranchée comportant une tranchée pour une électrode grille et une tranchée pour permettre l'isolement des éléments. De plus, une pluralité d'éléments de mémoire, chacun d'entre eux comprenant le transistor qui présente une structure de tranchée et comprend un semi-conducteur à base d'oxyde, sont empilés dans un dispositif semi-conducteur de sorte à pouvoir réduire l'aire du circuit du dispositif semi-conducteur.
