A HfAlO charge storage layer in SONOS (polysilicon-oxide-silicon nitride-oxide-silicon) type memory for multi-bit per cell operation by channel hot electron injection (CHEI) programming and hot hole injection (HHI) erase with a SiO2/HfAlO/SiO2 structure is proposed. Compared to conventional NROM, HfAlO shows the advantages of high speed program/erase of HfO2 as well as good charge retention and high crystallization temperature of Al2O3 , which makes HfAlO a very promising candidate for the charge storage layer. Excellent 2-bit per cell property with good 10-year charge retention is demonstrated from the charge retention tests, as well as the programming/erasing operations
