A body-contacted (BC) SOI MOSFET structure without the floating-body effect is proposed and successfully demonstrated. The key idea of the proposed structure is that the field oxide does not consume the silicon film on buried oxide completely, so that the well contact can suppress the body potential increase in SOI MOSFET through the remaining silicon film between the field oxide and buried oxide. The junction capacitance of the proposed structure which ensures high-speed operation can also maintain that of the conventional thin-film SOI MOSFET at about 0.5 V. The measured device characteristics show the suppressed floating-body effect as expected. A 64 Mb SOI DRAM chip with the proposed BC-SOI structure has been also fabricated successfully. As compared with bulk MOSFET's, the proposed SOI MOSFET's have a unique degradation-rate coefficient that increases with increasing stress voltage and have better ESD susceptibility. In addition, it should be noted that the proposed SOI MOSFET's have a fully bulk CMOS compatible layout and process
