  • Patent number: 8133780
    Abstract: A SRAM of complete CMOS type having its memory cell composed of six MISFETs, in which a pair of local wiring lines for connecting the input/output terminals of CMOS inverters are formed of a refractory metal silicide layer formed over a first conducting layer constituting the individual gate electrodes of the drive MISFETs, the transfer MISFETs and the load MISFETs of the memory cell and in which a reference voltage line formed over the local wiring lines is arranged to be superposed over the local wiring lines to form a capacity element. Moreover, the capacity element is formed between the local wiring lines and the first conducting layer by superposing the local wiring lines over the first conducting layer. Moreover, the local wiring lines are formed by using resistance lowering means such as silicification. In addition, there are made common the means for lowering the resistance of the gate electrode of the transfer MISFETs and the means for forming the local wiring lines.

  • Patent number: 7582921
    Abstract: In a masking pattern (a) for patterning word and data lines, length is changed between adjacent word lines so as to be shifted from each other at their tips, and furthermore, the tip of each word line is cut obliquely. It is thus possible to prevent the resist pattern from separation and contact of adjacent patterns. Consequently, it is also possible to prevent break failures of patterned lines and short failures between those patterned lines.

  • Patent number: 7196368
    Abstract: A capacitor consisting of a storage electrode (19), a capacitor dielectric film (20) and a plate electrode (21) is formed in a trench formed through dielectric films (6, 8, 10 and 12) stacked on a semiconductor substrate (1) and buried wiring layers (9 and 11) are formed under the capacitor. As the capacitor is formed not in the semiconductor substrate but over it, there is room in area in which the capacitor can be formed and the difficultly of forming wiring is reduced by using the wiring layers (9 and 11) for a global word line and a selector line. As the upper face of an dielectric film (32) which is in contact with the lower face of wiring (34) in a peripheral circuit area is extended into a memory cell area and is in contact with the side of the capacitor (33), step height between the peripheral circuit area and the memory cell area is remarkably reduced.
