Improvement of electrical characteristics of local BOX MOSFETs by heavily doped structures and elucidation of the related mechanism

We proposed heavily doped silicon between insulators (HDSBI) MOSFETs to improve electrical characteristics of local BOX MOSFETs by using simple structures that combine local BOX regions with additional doped regions. HDSBI MOSFETs have heavily doped regions between local BOX regions, in which acceptors or traps are introduced. Simulated electrical characteristics demonstrated that they can suppress the SCEs and the kink effect, as well as the self-heating effect (SHE), which is suppressed by conventional local BOX MOSFETs. We elucidated how the additional doped regions in HDSBI MOSFETs suppress the SCEs and the kink effect. We concluded that HDSBI MOSFETs are suitable for applications, such as multi-purpose system-on-chip on which both short-channel logic circuits and high drive current circuits are integrated.
