In a cell region of a first major surface of a semiconductor substrate of a first conductivity type, a first well of a second conductivity type is in an upper surface. A diffusion region of a first conductivity type is in the upper surface in the first well. A first gate insulating film is on the first well, and a first gate electrode on the first gate insulating film. A second well of a second conductivity type is in the upper surface of the first major surface on a peripheral portion of the cell region. A second gate insulating film is on the second well, and a thick field oxide film is on the peripheral side than the second gate insulating film. A second gate electrode is sequentially on the second gate insulating film and the field oxide film and electrically connected to the first gate electrode. A first electrode is connected to the first, second well and the diffusion region. A second electrode is connected on a second major surface of the semiconductor substrate. A gate wiring is on the field oxide film, going around a periphery of the cell region, and electrically connected to the second gate electrode. The gate wiring is a silicide of a constituting substance of the second gate electrode.
