Abstract

This article describes a process for preparing high density MNOS read mostly random-access memory devices. The process requires the forming of an N-type epitaxial layer 10 over a P-type semiconductor body 11 into which P-type material is diffused to form isolation regions in the layer using oxide masking 12. Following the creation of these P-type isolation diffusions, N-type diffusants are diffused into the layer to form contact regions in the epitaxial layer.
