Matching characterization has been performed on 0.18 μm NMOS devices for different substrate voltage values Vb and for various oxide thicknesses Tox, in order to determine the origin of the difference between experimental results and matching theory. Both experimental results and simulations outline an obvious tendency of mismatch to increase with Tox and Vb. Moreover, the greater contribution of threshold voltage mismatch seems to originate from the statistical fluctuations of channel dopant number. Nevertheless, Poisson distribution of channel dopant number fluctuations does not explain the absolute amplitude of threshold voltage mismatch that could be either related to channel dopant clustering or to deviation from Poisson statistical law
