This paper describes a 1.2V high performance 0.13 /spl mu/m generation SOI technology. Aggressive ground-rules and a tungsten damascene local interconnect render the densest 6T SRAM reported to date with a cell area of 2.16 /spl mu/m/sup 2/. This is accomplished with 248nm lithography, using optical proximity correction and resolution enhancement techniques on all critical levels. Interconnect performance requirements are achieved by using up to 8 levels of Cu wiring and an advanced low-k interlevel dielectric.
