  • Publication number: 20220173042
    Abstract: An embodiment includes a method. The method includes: forming a first conductive line over a substrate; depositing a first dielectric layer over the first conductive line; depositing a second dielectric layer over the first dielectric layer, the second dielectric layer including a different dielectric material than the first dielectric layer; patterning a via opening in the first dielectric layer and the second dielectric layer, where the first dielectric layer is patterned using first etching process parameters, and the second dielectric layer is patterned using the first etching process parameters; patterning a trench opening in the second dielectric layer; depositing a diffusion barrier layer over a bottom and along sidewalls of the via opening, and over a bottom and along sidewalls of the trench opening; and filling the via opening and the trench opening with a conductive material.

  • Patent number: 11342224
    Abstract: A method of forming a semiconductor device includes forming a conductive line over a substrate; forming an etch stop layer (ESL) over the conductive line, the ESL extending continuously along an upper surface of the conductive line and along an upper surface of a first dielectric layer adjacent to the conductive line, where a first lower surface of the ESL contacts the upper surface of the conductive line, and a second lower surface of the ESL contacts the upper surface of the first dielectric layer, the first lower surface being closer to the substrate than the second lower surface; forming a second dielectric layer over the ESL; forming an opening in the second dielectric layer, the opening exposing a first portion of the ESL; removing the first portion of the ESL to expose the conductive line; and filling the opening with an electrically conductive material to form a via.
