A Comparative Evaluation Of DRAM Bit-Line Spacer Integration Schemes

With decreasing dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) cell sizes, DRAM process development has become increasingly difficult. Bit-line (BL) sensing margins and refresh times have become problematic as cell sizes have decreased, due to an increase in BL parasitic capacitance (Cb). The main factor impacting Cb is the parasitic capacitance between the BL and the node contact (CBL-NC) [1]. To reduce ... » read more
