Abstract:
The NBTI degradation was systematically investigated for a 90nm p-MOSFET by simulation and experiment. The reaction-diffusion model was extended for NBTI simulations at arbitrary gate voltage, frequency, and duty cycle within a calibrated range. Long-time NBTI degradation was simulated up to 10 years in order to estimate the transistor lifetime under typical chip operation conditions.
