(FR) DISPOSITIF À SEMI-CONDUCTEUR ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION
Abstract
(EN)
A semiconductor device includes a string of transistors stacked along a vertical direction above a substrate of the semiconductor device. The string can include a first substring, a channel connector disposed above the first substring, and a second substring. The first substring includes a first channel structure having a first channel layer and a first gate dielectric structure that extend along the vertical direction. The second substring is stacked above the channel connector, and has a second channel structure that includes a second channel layer and a second gate dielectric structure that extend along the vertical direction. The channel connector, electrically coupling the first and the second channel layer, is disposed below the second gate dielectric structure to enable formation of a conductive path in a bottom region of the second channel layer. The bottom region is associated with a lowermost transistor in the second substring.

L'invention concerne un dispositif à semi-conducteur comprenant une chaîne de transistors empilés le long d'une direction verticale au-dessus d'un substrat du dispositif à semi-conducteur. La chaîne peut comprendre une première sous-chaîne, un connecteur de canal disposé au-dessus de la première sous-chaîne, et une seconde sous-chaîne. La première sous-chaîne comprend une première structure de canal ayant une première couche de canal et une première structure diélectrique de grille qui s'étendent le long de la direction verticale. La seconde sous-chaîne est empilée au-dessus du connecteur de canal, et a une seconde structure de canal qui comprend une seconde couche de canal et une seconde structure diélectrique de grille qui s'étendent le long de la direction verticale. Le connecteur de canal, couplant électriquement la première et la seconde couche de canal, est disposé au-dessous de la seconde structure diélectrique de grille pour permettre la formation d'un trajet conducteur dans une région inférieure de la seconde couche de canal. La région inférieure est associée à un transistor le plus bas dans la seconde sous-chaîne.
