1. A semiconductor device, comprising a MISFET, wherein the MISFET includes:

  • an active region made of a semiconductor substrate;

    a gate insulating film formed on the active region;

    a gate electrode formed on the gate insulating film;

    source/drain regions formed in regions of the active region located on both sides of the gate electrode; and

    an internal stress film formed on the source/drain regions and for generating a stress in a gate length direction in a channel region located in the active region under the gate electrode, and the internal stress film is not formed on an upper surface of the gate electrode.
