Paper Abstract

In order to satisfy the twin requirements of increased performance at low cost, a novel architecture that allows the differentiation of the source and drain implants of an EPROM cell without any additional processing steps has been developed. This cell is more immune to electrical stress than a standard cell during both programming and read cycles. In addition, this cell is inherently electrically shorter and therefore can be used to reduce die size in advanced EPROM devices.
