A process for the production of highly integrated circuits contaiining p-and n-channel MOS transistors including gate electrodes which consist of a doped double layer of polysilicon and metal silicide. The gates are doped with boron and are produced by diffusion from the metal silicide layer which has previously been doped with boron by ion implantation into the undoped polysilicon layer. The metal silicide layer preferably consisting of tantalum silicide is provided with a masking layer consisting of SiO.sub.2, and the structuring of the boron-doped silicide gate and the masking layer is carried out after the boron atoms have been diffused in. The process serves to safely avoid undesired boron penetration effects which considerably influence the short channel properties of the transistors. The process is used for the production of CMOS-circuits having a high packing density.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
