Abstract: A method for fabricating a non-volatile memory semiconductor device is disclosed. The method includes the steps of providing a substrate; forming a gate pattern on the substrate, wherein the gate pattern comprises a first polysilicon layer on the substrate, an oxide-nitride-oxide (ONO) stack on the first polysilicon layer, and a second polysilicon layer on the ONO stack; forming an oxide layer on the top surface and sidewall of the gate pattern; performing a first etching process to remove part of the oxide layer; and performing a second etching process to completely remove the remaining oxide layer.
Abstract: A method for fabricating a semiconductor device includes forming a patterned multi-layered dielectric film on a substrate; forming a patterned stack on the patterned multi-layered dielectric film so that an edge of the patterned multi-layered dielectric film is exposed from the patterned stack; forming a cover layer to cover a part of the substrate and expose the patterned stack and the exposed edge of the patterned multi-layered dielectric film; removing at least a part of the exposed edge of the patterned multi-layered dielectric film by using the cover layer and the patterned stack as an etching mask; and performing an ion implantation process by using the cover layer as an etching mask so as to form a doped region.
