Abstract

To reduce collector-substrate capacitance, the wafers used in advanced bipolar integrated circuits have to be lightly doped P-substrates. To obtain deep trench isolation, a channel stopper formed at the bottom of the deep trench is necessary to prevent the lightly doped P- substrate from surface inversion.
