Abstract

A technique is proposed to improve single event upset reliability of 0.09 μm SRAM cell by introducing an extra implant step similar to pocket halo, super steep retrograde channel and $V_t$ adjust implant steps in the existing process flow. It is shown that by changing the energy, dose and angle of implant, a heavily doped p+ region of high recombination rate can be introduced beneath the source/drain junctions. This results in decrease in effective charge collection volume, thereby increasing critical LET to flip the SRAM cell.
