We describe the integration of a 45-nm node CMOS for low operation power (LOP) application. The SD extension profile along with a strain channel and a thin-gate-SiON were optimized to keep high drive current at the 45-nm node. A novel STI structure was developed to reduce the SRAM cell size. Nano-clustering silica (NCS) without a middle-etch stopper (MES) was also developed to decrease the wire capacitance. As a result, we achieved an excellent LOP device operation with conventional processing, and we produced a 50% smaller SRAM cell-size as compared to the 65-nm node
