According to our scaling study, a deeper n-well allows for a lower n-well surface concentration with improved short-channel effects in submicrometer-channel PMOS-FET's. The deep n-well, however, requires a large space between n- and p-channel devices. This large space limits the integration density in scaled bulk CMOS VLSI's. The deep-trench isolation combined with an epitaxial layer resolves this drawback with significantly improved device-to-device isolation and latchup susceptibility. The 6-µm-deep with 2-µm-wide deep trench is etched in the epitaxial layer and is refilled with 1500 Å of thermal silicon-dioxide film and 2 µm of polysilicon film. The sheet resistances of N+and P+diffusion and N+-doped polysilicon layers were reduced to 3 to 4 Ω/□ by using the self-aligned TiSi2layer with an oxide sidewall spacer. As a result of this low sheet resistance, the saturation drain current of submicrometer n- and p-channel MOSFET's was improved approximately 33 to 37 percent compared with conventional MOSFET's without the self-aligned TiSi2layer. The 0.5-µm-channel CMOS devices using the deep-trench isolation with an epitaxial layer and the self-aligned TiSi2layer operated at a propagation delay time of 140 ps with a power dissipation of 1.1 mW per inverter and attained a maximum clock frequency of 400 MHz in a static / 4 counter without suffering from latchup even at the latchup trigger current of 200 mA.
