SRAM cell design with high resistor CMOS gate structure for soft error rate improvement

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #6992916.

A high resistor SRAM memory cell to reduce soft error rate includes a first inverter having an output as a first memory node, and a second inverter having an output as a second memory node. The second memory node is coupled to an input of the first inverter through a first resistor. The first memory node is coupled to an input of the second inverter through a second resistor. A pair of access transistors are respectively coupled to a pair of bit lines, a split word line and one of the memory nodes. The resistors are prepared by coating a layer of silicide material on a selective portion of the gate structure of the transistors included in the first inverter, and connecting a portion of the gate structure that is substantially void of the silicide material to the drain of the transistors included in the second inverter.
