NBTI Reliability of P-Channel Transistors With Diamond-Like Carbon Liner Having Ultrahigh Compressive Stress


Negative bias temperature instability (NBTI) characteristics of p-channel field-effect transistors (p-FETs) with diamond-like carbon (DLC) liner stressor having ultrahigh compressive stress (~ 5 GPa) are investigated for the first time. Ultrafast measurement was employed for NBTI study. Power law slopes ranging from ~ 0.058 to ~ 0.072 are reported here. P… (More)
