The thermal electrochemical analysis and modeling of negative bias temperature instability, oxide breakdown, and hot-carrier injection effects on metal-oxide-semiconductor devices are performed. The temperature-accelerated voltage stress has been examined experimentally. A subcircuit model aiming to evaluate the stress-induced degradation via simulation is developed. The measured and simulated performance for fresh and stressed devices at different temperatures is presented. The radio frequency performance degradation of a test circuit due to temperature-accelerated voltage stress is investigated.
