|Abstract:||A new DC technique, the drain current-conductance method (DCCM), has been developed to extract the gate bias dependent effective channel mobility (ieff ), and source and drain series resistance (R, and Rd) of drain-engineered MOSFET's. The extraction of £ieff, R3, and Rd by DCCM is based on the DC measurements of drain current and conductance of a single device. The negligible difference between the measured and modeled (using the extracted parameters) linear drain current showed that the DCCM is accurate and effective for devices with different graded junction structures and channel lengths. Asymmetry between R, and Rd for LDD p-MOSFET's was found to be more significant than for LATID n-MOSFET's. This asymmetry has invalidated many methods which utilized the assumptions of Rd -R3 for the extraction of device parameters. The DCCM was further applied to devices with nonuniform hot-carrier degradation. The fieff, R3, and Rd of LATID n-MOSFET's degraded under different hot-carrier stress conditions were extracted. The increase in Rd is found to dominate the initial phase of hotcarrier degradation while the decrease in ieff intensifies as the stress duration increases. The extracted parameters have provided physical insight into the asymmetries of graded junctions and degradation mechanisms of hot-carrier stressed MOSFET's. The DCCM is especially useful for the extraction of SPICE parameters that are usable in circuit and reliability simulation. © 1998 IEEE.|
