The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET, MOS-FET, or MOS FET), also known as the metal–oxide–silicon transistor (MOS transistor, or MOS), is a type of field-effect transistor that is fabricated by the controlled oxidation of a semiconductor, typically silicon. It has a covered gate, whose voltage determines the conductivity of the device. This ability to change conductivity with the amount of applied voltage can be used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. The MOSFET was invented by Egyptian engineer Mohamed M. Atalla and Korean engineer Dawon Kahng at Bell Labs in November 1959. It is the basic building block of modern electronics, and the most widely manufactured device in history, with an estimated total of 13 sextillion (1.3 × 10²²) MOSFETs manufactured between 1960 and 2018.

Sequential Selective Epitaxial Growth

By forming MOSFETs on a substrate having pre-existing ridges of semiconductor material (i.e., a “corrugated substrate”), the resolution limitations associated with conventional semiconductor manufacturing processes can be overcome, and high-performance, low-power transistors can be reliably and repeatably produced. Forming a corrugated substrate prior to actual device formation allows the ridges on the corrugated substrate to be created using high precision techniques that are not ordinarily suitable for device production. MOSFETs that subsequently incorporate the high-precision ridges into their channel regions will typically exhibit much more precise and less variable performance than similar MOSFETs formed using optical lithography-based techniques that cannot provide the same degree of patterning accuracy. A multi step epitaxial process can be used to extend the ridges with different dopant types, high mobility semiconductor, and or advanced multi-layer strutures. For CMOS integrated circuits a capping layer is formed over the a first region. Epitaxial layers are formed in a second region. Then the capping layer is removed from the first region and a capping layer is formed over the second region. Epitaxial layers can than be formed in the first region.

Integrated Circuit On Corrugated Substrate

By forming MOSFETs on a substrate having pre-existing ridges of semiconductor material (i.e., a “corrugated substrate”), the resolution limitations associated with conventional semiconductor manufacturing processes can be overcome, and high-performance, low-power transistors can be reliably and repeatably produced. Forming a corrugated substrate prior to actual device formation allows the ridges on the corrugated substrate to be created using high precision techniques that are not ordinarily suitable for device production. MOSFETs that subsequently incorporate the high-precision ridges into their channel regions will typically exhibit much more precise and less variable performance than similar MOSFETs formed using optical lithography-based techniques that cannot provide the same degree of patterning accuracy. Additional performance enhancement techniques such as pulse-shaped doping and “wrapped” gates can be used in conjunction with the segmented channel regions to further enhance device performance.

Symmetrically and asymmetrically stacked transistor group RF switch

A silicon-on-insulator (SOI) RF switch adapted for improved power handling capability using a reduced number of transistors is described. In one embodiment, an RF switch includes pairs of switching and shunting stacked transistor groupings to selectively couple RF signals between a plurality of input / output nodes and a common RF node. The switching and shunting stacked transistor groupings comprise one or more MOSFET transistors connected together in a “stacked” or serial configuration. In one embodiment, the transistor groupings are “symmetrically” stacked in the RF switch (i.e., the transistor groupings all comprise an identical number of transistors). In another embodiment, the transistor groupings are “asymmetrically” stacked in the RF switch (i.e., at least one transistor grouping comprises a number of transistors that is unequal to the number of transistors comprising at least one other transistor grouping). The stacked configuration of the transistor groupings enable the RF switch to withstand RF signals of varying and increased power levels. The asymmetrically stacked transistor grouping RF switch facilitates area-efficient implementation of the RF switch in an integrated circuit. Maximum input and output signal power levels can be withstood using a reduced number of stacked transistors.

Non-volatile resistance switching memories and methods of making same

An integrated circuit memory cell including: a semiconductor having a first active area, a second active area, and a channel between the active areas; and a layer of a variable resistance material (VRM) directly above the channel. In one embodiment, there is a first conductive layer between the VRM and the channel and a second conductive layer directly above the VRM layer. The VRM preferably is a correlated electron material (CEM). The memory cell comprises a FET, such as a JFET or a MESFET. In another embodiment, there is a layer of an insulating material between the VRM and the channel. In this case, the memory cell may include a MOSFET structure.

HIGH-k/METAL GATE MOSFET WITH REDUCED PARASITIC CAPACITANCE

The present invention provides a high-k gate dielectric / metal gate MOSFET that has a reduced parasitic capacitance. The inventive structure includes at least one metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) 100 located on a surface of a semiconductor substrate 12. The least one MOSFET 100 includes a gate stack including, from bottom to top, a high-k gate dielectric 28 and a metal-containing gate conductor 30. The metal-containing gate conductor 30 has gate corners 31 located at a base segment of the metal-containing gate conductor. Moreover, the metal-containing gate conductor 30 has vertically sidewalls 102A and 102B devoid of the high-k gate dielectric 28 except at the gate corners 31. A gate dielectric 18 laterally abuts the high-k gate dielectric 28 present at the gate corners 31 and a gate spacer 36 laterally abuts the metal-containing gate conductor 30. The gate spacer 36 is located upon an upper surface of both the gate dielectric 18 and the high-k gate dielectric that is present at the gate corners 31.
