A ferroelectric capacitor comprising a lower electrode, a ceramic capacity film made of a ferroelectric substance and an upper electrode is provided on a substrate insulating film formed on a semiconductor substrate. A layer insulating film is formed on the semiconductor substrate so as to cover the ferroelectric capacitor. An electrode wiring is formed on the layer insulating film. A length L of the surface of the ceramic capacity film which is present between an intersection of the side of the upper electrode and the upper face of the ceramic capacity film and an intersection of the side of the ceramic capacity film and the upper face of the lower electrode and a thickness D of the ceramic capacity film have a relationship of L.gtoreq.2D.
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.
