A methodology for the investigation of CMOS variability using statistical measurements (spot, IV and CV) on single CMOS devices and matched pairs has been presented. Results on 180 nm and 90 nm technologies have been discussed. An extension of the available variability models has been proposed to account for the experimental spread of the absolute threshold voltage values. Variability of carrier mobility and its dependence on halo doping has been pointed out.
