The process starts by depositing polysilicon on top of a silicon wafer having a suitable passivation layer 2 previously formed thereon. A photoresist in as then used to form mask 3. Implantation of N/+/ (arsenic) through the mask is effected, as shown. The mask is then etched away, and the N/+/ activated. An oxide layer 4 is then grown differentially, as shown in Fig. 2, at approximately 850 degrees C.
