|Abstract:||A polysilicon-depletion effect is observed for the non-degenerately doped polysilicon layer of a tungsten silicide-polysilicon gate stack of buried-channel p-MOSFETs, but not for n-MOSFETs with a polysilicon layer of the same doping concentration. A lower current drive and transconductance, coupled with a higher subthreshold slope, will result in poorer dynamic performance for p-MOSFETs having a lower doped polysilicon layer. The potential drop across the lower doped polysilicon layer results in lower gate currents. Consequently the p-MOSFETs with a lower doped polysilicon layer are more resistant to hot-carrier induced degradation and have higher hot-carrier lifetimes. Thus there exists an optimum polysilicon doping concentration for tungsten-polycide devices and the latter is dependent on the desired electrical performance and hot-carrier reliability of buried-channel p-MOSFETs. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.|
