A semiconductor device capacitor structure comprises a semiconductor substrate having an impurity diffusion region; an insulating layer formed on the semiconductor substrate and having a contact hole on the impurity diffusion region; a first lower electrode of a half ring type formed on the insulating film along an upper edge of the contact hole; a second lower electrode formed on a surface of the substrate exposed through the contact hole, a wall of the contact hole, and the first lower electrode; a dielectric layer formed on the first and second lower electrodes; and an upper electrode formed on the dielectric layer. This structure increases capacitance, thereby improving the characteristics and reliability of the device.
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.
