Resistor integration structure and technique for noise elimination

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #7384855.

A method of preventing contact noise in a SiCr thin film resistor includes performing in situ depositions of a SiCr layer and then a TiW layer on a substrate without breaking a vacuum between the depositions, to prevent formation of any discontinuous oxide between the SiCr layer and the TiW layer. The SiCr and TiW layers are patterned to form a predetermined SiCr thin film resistor pattern and a TiW resistor contact pattern on the SiCr thin film resistor, and a metallization layer is provided to contact the TiW forming the resistor contact pattern.
