The cause of over-erasure in a two-bit nitride storage flash memory cell is investigated. Extra positive charges accumulated above the n/sup +/ junction and channel-shortening enhanced drain-induced barrier lowering effect are found to be responsible for threshold voltage (V/sub t/) lowering in an over-erased cell. A modified erase scheme is proposed to(More)
A novel programming by hot-hole injection nitride electron storage (PHINES) Flash memory technology is developed. The memory bit size of 0.046 /spl mu/m/sup 2/ is fabricated based on 0.13-/spl mu/m technology. PHINES cell uses a nitride trapping storage cell structure. Fowler-Nordheim (FN) injection is performed to raise V/sub t/ in erase while programming(More)
