Title
(EN) SPLIT GATE NON-VOLATILE FLASH MEMORY CELL HAVING A SILICON-METAL FLOATING GATE AND METHOD OF MAKING SAME
(FR) CELLULE DE MÉMOIRE FLASH NON VOLATILE À GRILLE DIVISÉE AYANT UNE GRILLE FLOTTANTE DE MÉTAL AU SILICIUM ET SIB PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract
(EN) A non- volatile memory cell includes a substrate of a first conductivity type with first and second spaced apart regions of a second conductivity type, forming a channel region therebetween. A select gate is insulated from and disposed over a first portion of the channel region which is adjacent to the first region. A floating gate is insulated from and disposed over a second portion of the channel region which is adjacent the second region. Metal material is formed in contact with the floating gate. A control gate is insulated from and disposed over the floating gate. An erase gate includes a first portion insulated from and disposed over the second region and is insulated from and disposed laterally adjacent to the floating gate, and a second portion insulated from and laterally adjacent to the control gate and partially extends over and vertically overlaps the floating gate.
