In this paper, we present an advanced integration approach using milli-second anneal technique to enhance device performance. In addition to enhanced poly-silicon activation, the device gain resulted from channel stress modulation, and retarded dopant diffusion can be obtained through process optimization including rapid-thermal anneal (RTA), capping layer, and milli-second anneal. More than 15% NMOS performance gain is demonstrated without undergoing milli-second-anneal-induced pattern loading effect and re-crystallization defect. No obvious stress relaxation and driving current degradation are observed in epi-SiGe PMOS. Moreover, the performance gain is increased while lowering the RTA temperature, suggesting that our proposed approach may open an alternative pathway for 45nm technology node and beyond
