1. A semiconductor memory device comprising:

  • a MOSFET including a gate electrode and source and drain regions of a second electrical conductivity type impurity material formed in a surface of a semiconductor substrate of a first electrical conductivity type material;

    a bit line connected to one of the source and drain regions of said MOSFET through a bit line contact hole made in an insulating film covering the surface of said substrate on which the MOSFET is formed; and

    a capacitor including a storage node electeode formed over a region where said MOSFET is formed, a capacitor insulating film and a plate electrode sequentially formed on said storage node electrode layer to be connected to another of said source and drain regions through a storage node contact hole made in said insulating film,wherein at least one of said storage node contact hole and bit line contact hole includes a first contact hole made in a first inter-layer insulating film formed over said gate electrode and a second contact hole made in a second inter-layer insulating film formed over an electrically conductive layer embedded in said first contact hole up to a level higher than the gate electrode such as to be contacted with said electrically conductive layer.
