A new low-temperature polysilicon high-voltage LDMOS (LTPS HVLDMOS) using excimer laser crystallization has been proposed for the first time. However, in order to enhance LTPS HVLDMOS characteristics, there are two starting points: 1) integrate the thin-film technology with the power device, and 2) clarify the requirement of excimer laser treatment for low-temperature power devices. As the result, the on/off current ratio after laser treatment is improved over 106 times than that before laser treatment at L/sub drift/ = 15 μm and V/sub ds/ = 25 V. The LTPS HVLDMOS after laser treatment also demonstrates the better tradeoff between the specific on resistance and breakdown voltage against the previous high-voltage thin-film transistors (HVTFTs) by solid-phase crystallization - such as semi-insulating (SI), metal field-plated, and offset-drain HVTFTs.
