A robust 6" hotwall flatzone nitride system is developed for scaled ONO interpoly. dielectric application in a high density EPROM memory cell. This system is designed to operate at low temperature (660° C) and gas ratio (4:1 NH3: DCS) with integrated silicon carbide components. The obtained key features are low defects (0.25 #/cm2 particles), smooth topography (measured by atomic force microscopy) and superior electrical interface as measured by electrical and optical methods.
