  • First-ever 28 nm embedded split-gate MONOS (SG-MONOS) flash macros have been developed to increase memory capacity embedded in micro controller units and to improve performance over wide junction temperature range from -40°C to 170 °C as demanded strongly in automotive uses. [...] Key Method Temperature-adaptive step pulse erase control (TASPEC) improves the TDDB lifetime of dielectric films between metal interconnect layers by three times. TASPEC is particularly useful for a data flash macro with one million…Expand Abstract
