Self-aligned trench MOSFETs and methods for manufacturing the same are disclosed. By having a self-aligned structure, the number of MOSFETS per unit area—the cell density—is increased, making the MOSFETs cheaper to produce. The self-aligned structure for the MOSFET is provided by making the sidewall ...
