Title (EN) INTEGRATION OF A MEMORY TRANSISTOR INTO HIGH-K, METAL GATE CMOS PROCESS FLOW
(FR) INTÉGRATION D'UN TRANSISTOR DE MÉMORISATION DANS UN FLUX DE PRODUCTION CMOS COMBINANT DIÉLECTRIQUE À FORTE PERMITTIVITÉ ET GRILLE MÉTALLIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Memory cells including embedded SONOS based non-volatile memory (NVM) and MOS transistors and methods of forming the same are described. Generally, the method includes: forming a gate stack of a NVM transistor in a NVM region of a substrate including the NVM region and a plurality of MOS regions; and depositing a high-k dielectric material over the gate stack of the NVM transistor and the plurality of MOS regions to concurrently form a blocking dielectric comprising the high-k dielectric material in the gate stack of the NVM transistor and high-k gate dielectrics in the plurality of MOS regions. In one embodiment, a first metal layer is deposited over the high-k dielectric material and patterned to concurrently form a metal gate over the gate stack of the NVM transistor, and a metal gate of a field effect transistor in one of the MOS regions.
(FR) L'invention concerne des cellules de mémoire comprenant des transistors MOS et MNV (mémoire non volatile) à base de SONOS intégrés, ainsi que des procédés de formation de ces cellules. D'une manière générale, le procédé comprend les étapes consistant à : former un empilement de grille d'un transistor MNV dans une région MNV d'un substrat comprenant la région MNV et une pluralité de régions MOS ; et déposer un matériau diélectrique à forte permittivité sur l'empilement de grille du transistor MNV et la pluralité de régions MOS pour former simultanément un diélectrique de blocage comprenant le matériau diélectrique à forte permittivité dans l'empilement de grille du transistor MNV et des diélectriques de grille à forte permittivité dans la pluralité de régions MOS. Dans un mode de réalisation, une première couche métallique est déposée sur le matériau diélectrique à forte permittivité et structurée pour former simultanément une grille métallique sur l'empilement de grille du transistor MNV et une grille métallique d'un transistor à effet de champ dans une des régions MOS.
