#### A New Embedded Measurement Structure for eDRAM Capacitor

##### L. Lopez, J. M. Portal, D. Nee

The embedded DRAM (eDRAM) is more and more used in System On Chip (SOC). The integration of the DRAM capacitor process into a logic process is challenging to get satisfactory yields. The specific process of DRAM capacitor and the low capacitance value (~30F) of this device induce problems of process monitoring and failure analysis. We propose a new test structure to measure the capacitance value of each DRAM cell capacitor in a DRAM array. This concept has been validated by simulation on a 0.18$\mu$m eDRAM technology.
