Shared contact structure, semiconductor device and method of fabricating the semiconductor device

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #8114730.

A shared contact structure, semiconductor device and method of fabricating the semiconductor device, in which the shared contact structure may include a gate electrode disposed on an active region of a substrate and including facing first and second sidewalls. The first sidewall may be covered with an insulating spacer. The source/drain regions may be formed within the active region adjacent the first sidewall, and provided on the opposite side of the second sidewall. A corner protection pattern may be formed adjacent the source/drain regions and the insulating spacer, and covered by an inter-layer dielectric. A shared contact plug may be formed through the inter-layer dielectric, to be in contact with the gate electrode, corner protection pattern and source/drain regions.
