    The impact of the Si cap/SiGe layer on the Hf-based high-k /metal gate SiGe channel pMOSFET performance and reliability has been investigated. We proposed an optimized strain SiGe channel with a Si cap layer to overcome the Ge diffusion and confine the channel carriers in the strained SiGe layer without the formation of a significant parasitic channel at the interface. With this optimized Si/SiGe stack channel, a high-performance Hf-based high-k/metal gate SiGe pMOSFET can be obtained with an appropriate VTH (~0.3 V), low C -V hysteresis ( <; 5 mV), and better ION - IOFF , VTH rolloff, and VTH stability. By the way, the related interface trap density in the high-k gate stack layer can also be reduced, thus improving the device's NBTI and HCI stressing-induced reliability. View full abstract»

    The behavior of an off-state leakage current induced by heavy-ion irradiation in deep-submicrometer NMOSFETs is comprehensively investigated by 3-D simulation in this paper. The results show that the off-state drain current is increased, which is mainly due to the positively charged damage region generated by the heavy-ion strike in the shallow-trench isolation (STI) region. As the channel length scales down, the off-state leakage collapse becomes more severe. The dependence of the off-state leakage current on the device channel length and width is studied, which gives the location of the most critical physical damage region in the STI trench oxide. Moreover, the impact of the gate bias during exposure to heavy ions on the device off-state behavior is also analyzed, indicating that a low operating voltage is beneficial to the circuit radiation hardening. At last, to suppress the off-state leakage collapse, some possible solutions are proposed. View full abstract»

    A major intrinsic limitation of the reaction-diffusion (R-D) model for negative-bias temperature instability (NBTI) is revealed through dynamic stress experiments. We found no evidence of self-limiting recovery, one of the key features of the transport-based R-D model, after repeating the stress and relaxation cycles alternately for many times. The amount of recovery per cycle of the parameter of interest (e.g., threshold voltage shift, change in the charge-pumping (CP) current, etc.) is shown to remain constant, independent of the number of stress/recovery cycles. Under repeated cycling of the test device between stress and recovery, it is also found that the amount of parametric shift induced by the stress cycle becomes nearly identical to that recovered during the relaxation cycle, i.e., the parametric evolution under a fixed set of stress and recovery intervals is cyclic in nature. In conjunction with the thermal activation result, this cyclic behavior of the dynamic NBTI is ascribed to an ensemble of switching hole traps having broad spectra of characteristic trapping and detrapping time constants. The same group of traps responds under a fixed set of experimental conditions, giving rise to the cyclic behavior. The interface state generation was also investigated using a CP current measurement and is found to be permanent within the range of timing examined. It is also shown that the variation in the power-law exponent of the as-measured change in the CP current with temperature could be consistently explained by considering the different thermal activation of the hole trapping and interface state components. In view of these new evidences, previous claims of consistency between the generation/recovery of the interface states and the R-D model or its dispersive counterpart must be reviewed.

    Continual scaling of on-chip wiring structures has brought significant challenges for materials and processes beyond the 32-nm technology node in microelectronics. Recently, 3-D integration with through-silicon vias (TSVs) has emerged as an effective solution to meet the future interconnect requirement. Among others, thermomechanical reliability is a key concern for the development of TSV structures used in die stacking as 3-D interconnects. This paper examines the effects of thermally induced stresses on the interfacial reliability of TSV structures. First, 3-D distribution of the thermal stress near the TSV and the wafer surface is analyzed. Using a linear superposition method, a semianalytic solution is developed for a simplified structure consisting of a single TSV embedded in a silicon (Si) wafer. The solution is verified for relatively thick wafers by comparing to numerical results from finite element analysis (FEA). The stress analysis suggests interfacial delamination as a potential failure mechanism for the TSV structure. An analytical solution is then obtained for the steady-state energy release rate as the upper bound for the interfacial fracture driving force, while the effect of crack length is evaluated numerically by FEA. With these results, the effects of the TSV dimensions (e.g., via diameter and wafer thickness) on the interfacial reliability are elucidated. Furthermore, the effects of via material properties and dielectric buffer layers are discussed. View full abstract»

    The impact of strain-induced oxide trap charge on the performance and reliability of fully silicided (FUSI)-metal-gate silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MOSFETs is investigated. High strain from a contact etch stop layer (CESL) in FUSI-gate transistors increases channel mobility and drain current driving. A CESL nMOSFET with a thick SOI demonstrates increased hot-electron degradation than its thin SOI counterpart. However, a ring oscillator using thick SOI transistors shows less gate delay due to enhanced drain current. Strained p-channel transistors with a large SOI thickness are more vulnerable to negative bias temperature instability. The oxide trap charge also plays an important role in the circuit performance degradation of RF low-noise and power amplifiers. View full abstract»

    Thermally induced fluctuations in the logic state of a simple flip-flop occur on a timescale that renders them impossible to simulate through Monte Carlo methods. In a previous work, an analytical framework based on Markov chains and queue theory was introduced along with a symbolic solution for a truncated 1-D queue, diagonally connecting the two stable logic states in a two-dimensional (2-D) queue. In this paper, a complete solution for a full 2-D queue is presented, which maps all the possible thermal noise fluctuations of electron populations in flip-flop inverters. The results for the mean time to thermally induced error confirm the estimates given by truncated approximations. This formalism is also capable of computing arbitrary probability moments as well as steady-state distributions and transient behavior of the system. The full 2-D queue can also capture the statistics of other noise sources, like radiation-induced charge generation where the flip-flop can transiently reside in a queue state far from the diagonal connecting the two stable logic states of a flip-flop.

    The influence of octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS) surface modification of a gate dielectric on the electrical properties of polymer thin-film transistors based on poly(3-hexylthiophene) is investigated by using capacitance-voltage analysis. Results show that surface modification using OTS can effectively increase the field-effect mobility in the saturation region by almost two orders of magnitude to 2 × 102 cm2/V · s and improve the stability of the devices under gate-bias stress. Capacitance-voltage (C-V) analysis for the metal-polymer-oxide-silicon structures indicates that the frequency-dependent behavior of the C-V characteristics is related to the long relaxation time of the charge carriers in the polymer bulk rather than the trapping effect at the dielectric/ polymer interface, and the performance improvement of the de vices is attributed to a reduction of localized charges in the poly mer bulk.

    Moisture plays an important role in the integrity and reliability of printed circuit boards (PCBs). The presence of moisture in a PCB alters its thermal performance and thermomechanical properties, thereby affecting overall performance. Due to the shift in market trends toward halogen-free products, halogen-free PCB materials have recently gained popularity. There are many studies on the behavior of halogenated PCBs exposed to moisture, but there are less data available on the use of halogen-free flame retardants in PCBs. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the moisture behavior of halogen-free PCB materials and the effect of moisture on material thermal properties when compared with halogenated PCBs materials. In the past, the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering has conducted thermal-property measurements on halogen-free PCB materials. Measurements were conducted per industry-adopted test methods, including preconditioning of test samples. Some measurement results did not match manufacturers' datasheets. This paper examines the dependence of out-of-plane coefficient of thermal expansion, glass-transition temperature, time to delamination, and decomposition temperature on the moisture content in halogenated and halogen-free PCB materials. Four types of PCB materials from two manufacturers, including two halogen-free and two halogenated, were tested in this paper. Furthermore, this paper investigates the suitability of IPC-TM-650 preconditioning steps for thermal-property measurements. View full abstract»

    Nitride-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with an n- -GaN layer are proposed and fabricated. By providing a larger series resistance in the vertical direction, it was found that the n--GaN layer could enhance LED output intensity due to the enhanced current spreading. It was also found that LEDs with n--GaN layer thicknesses of 0.15, 0.2, and 0.25 μm could endure electrostatic discharge surges up to -1200, - 1800, and -3000 V, respectively. View full abstract»

  • Light Switched Plasma Charging Protection Device for High-Field Characterization and Flash Memory Protection

    Plasma charging damage (PCD) is usually measured by comparing the measurement results of an undamaged reference structure to the results of structures, which intentionally received PCD. If wafer level reliability structures are required, these test structures, including the damage amplifying antenna, have to be small enough to fit into the scribeline. However, when these test structures, usually transistors, become smaller, it is harder to realize damage-free reference structures, since the ratio from pad antenna to gate area will increase. To avoid this effect, protection devices are commonly placed parallel to the gate of the reference transistors. However, most protection devices do not allow high-field measurement or the use of both polarities, which is important for in-depth PCD analysis. A device, which at the same time protects the test structure from PCD and also permits bipolar high-field stress to be applied to the test structure, is shown in this paper. Its usefulness is demonstrated on a realistic test structure and as a protection device for Flash memory cells. View full abstract»

    Chip level electromigration (EM) reliability is determined by: 1) the element level EM failure probability used for design guideline generation; and 2) the distribution of EM elements against design limits. Balancing these two factors is critical for a chip design to achieve the best performance while maintaining chip level EM reliability. This paper discusses the relationship between element level and chip level EM failure probability and provides examples of EM evaluation of chip designs. View full abstract»

    In ultrascaled complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor technologies, the lucky-electron model does not describe correctly Channel Hot-Carrier (CHC) degradation for typical transistor test conditions independently of the gate dielectric (SiO2 or high- k). A new model to describe the CHC degradation behavior in n-channel metal-oxide field-effect transistors, based on the dominant role of the gate voltage into the total CHC stress, is presented. This new model can be applicable to long- and short-channel transistors with high- k or SiO2 as a dielectric. View full abstract»

  • A Robust Low- k /Cu Dual Damascene Interconnect (DDI) With Sidewall Protection Layer (SPL)

    Page(s): 98 - 105

    A robust Cu dual-damascene (DD) interconnect has been developed in a low-density (LD) SiOCH film (k = 2.7) with a low- k sidewall protection layer (SPL) made of plasmapolymerized divinylsiloxane-benzocyclobuten (p-BCB, k = 2.7). A thinned Ta/TaN barrier-metal (BM) structure combined with the low-k SPL was implemented. The SPL covering the DD sidewall in the LD-SiOCH film secures the spacing between the lines and vias, and makes low- k surface smooth which enhances the BM coverage on the DD sidewalls. As a result, the leakage yield against via misalignment and the insulating reliability such as time-dependent dielectric breakdown between the DDIs, particularly with vias, are improved. With our special p-BCB SPL, the BM was able to be thinned to half as thick as the conventional one, reducing resistances of the vias and the line and the interconnect RC delay without any degradation in the via electromigration reliability. The combination of the low-k SPL with the thin BM is a key for scaled-down robust LSIs with Cu DDIs in low-k dielectrics. View full abstract»

    Recently, liquid crystal display (LCD) panels have become very important components for portable electronics. In the high-density interconnection material, anisotropic conductive films (ACFs) are used to connect the outer lead of the tape-automated bonding to the transparent indium tin oxide electrodes of the LCD panel. The ACF consists of an adhesive polymer matrix and randomly dispersed conductive balls. In this paper, we analyzed the failure mode/mechanism of ACF which were identified as conductive ball corrosion, delamination, cracking, and polymer expansion/swelling. In the accelerated life test, we selected primary stress factors, such as temperature and humidity. As time passed, an increase in connection resistance was observed. Low [50% relative humidity (RH)] and high (95% RH) conditions of average humidity show about 3-4 times difference in lifetime at the same average temperature of 30 °C. Hence, the humidity was shown to be more highly influential on the lifetime of the ACF, considering the driving patterns of regular consumers. View full abstract»

  • Analysis of Bias Stress Instability in Amorphous InGaZnO Thin-Film Transistors

    In this paper, we report an analysis of electrical bias stress instability in amorphous InGaZnO (a-IGZO) thin-film transistors (TFTs). Understanding the variations of TFT characteristics under an electrical bias stress is important for commercial goals. In this experiment, the positive gate bias is initially applied to the tested a-IGZO TFTs, and subsequently, the negative gate bias is applied to the TFTs. For comparison with the subsequently negative-gate-bias-applied TFTs, another experiment is performed by directly applying the negative gate bias to the tested TFTs. For the positive gate bias stress, a positive shift in the threshold voltage (Vth) with no apparent change in the subthreshold swing (SSUB) is observed. On the other hand, when the negative gate bias is subsequently applied, the TFTs exhibit higher mobility with no significant change in SSUB, whereas the shift of the Vth is much smaller than that in the positive gate bias stress case. These phenomena are most likely induced by positively charged donor-like subgap density of states and the detrapping of trapped interface charge during the positive gate bias stress. The proposed mechanism was verified by device simulation. Thus, the proposed model can explain the instability for both positive and negative bias stresses in a-IGZO TFTs. View full abstract»

  • Degradation of High- k /Metal Gate nMOSFETs Under ESD-Like Stress in a 32-nm Technology

    The degradation of nMOSFETs induced by nondestructive electrostatic discharge-like (ESD-like) stress in a 32-nm bulk CMOS technology was studied using I- V characteristics and charge pumping measurements. The impact of stress on drain saturation current (Idsat), threshold voltage (Vt), transconductance peak (gm), and subthreshold swing (SS) is reported. For ESD stress applied on the drain, little degradation was observed until the device failed by drain-to-source filamentation. In contrast, for stress applied on the gate, positive ESD-like stress decreases Idsat and increases Vt of the nMOSFETs significantly, and the degradation increases with the effective gate oxide thickness. Different from positive bias temperature instability (PBTI) stress, the Vt shift depends on temperature rather weakly, which indicates a new dominant charge-trapping mechanism on the time scale of ESD events. In addition to the degradation of Vt and Idsat, the positive stress also caused significant damage to the Si/oxide interface in the nMOSFETs with thick gate oxide. The degradation of Idsat, Vt , gm, and SS under positive stress is more severe for devices with high-k gate compared to devices with SiON gate. It is also shown that the degradation induced by negative ESD-like stress applied on the gate is much smaller compared to positive stress. Finally, the impacts of the stress on the gate leakage current and on the the subsequent PBTI degradation kinetics are also studied. View full abstract»

    In this paper, we develop a semianalytical model that predicts the geometric component in charge-pumping (CP) measurements for local oxidation of silicon (LOCOS) and lightly doped drain (LDD) transistors. It is not only based on thermal diffusion, drift field, and self-induced drift field but also on the contribution of the active CP area and the low-level voltage (VL) of the gate signal. By adding this model to constant-amplitude CP components, such as LOCOS, LDD, and effective channel regions, we will be able to compute ICP-VL characteristics of LDD-MOSFET devices with LOCOS structure. In addition, we compare the geometric component model against numerous experimental data obtained from transistors of different gate lengths and widths. The calculated ICP- VL characteristics with geometric component model are found in good correlation with the experimental ICP- VL data and are more accurate than the calculated CP without the geometric component. This modeling approach can be extended for MOSFET stress reliability evaluation such as negative bias temperature instability and radiation degradations. View full abstract»

    Advancement of silicon and packaging technologies toward lower power and higher functionality requires better understanding between materials and process interactions. This paper illustrates the applications of 2-D X-ray metrology incorporated with a hot stage system for the first time in the literature, which allows one to simulate heating profiles of up to 300°C and observe the behavior of materials in situ within the packages. Three case studies are discussed: 1) segregation of metal particles in the next-generation thermal interface material, leading to corner thermal resistance (Rjc) degradation; (2) first level interconnect (FLI) solder bump bridging during chip attach of a large die server package with high substrate die area warpage in which limits of the die area substrate warpage need to be set in order to avoid FLI solder bump bridging during the chip attach solder reflow process; and 3) second level interconnect solder joint bridging at the surface mounting process of a large die package attached with an integrated heat spreader. By being able to study failures in situ at high temperatures, a new dimension to the package failure analysis is presented in this paper. View full abstract»

    The manufactured quartz flexible accelerometer has the serious problem of bad parametric repeatability. To solve this issue, this paper does systematic research about the accelerated stability test method to improve the long-term repeatability of the accelerometer from the product hierarchy. Proceeding from the analysis of the accelerometer's internal stress mechanism, it makes a positioning analysis of the causes of bad parametric repeatability and reveals what types of test stress make the accelerometer stable. After the main experimental factors are determined, the scope of these factors' level is obtained through enhancement tests. Based on previous research achievements, an accelerated stability testing scheme is worked out. By the accelerated stability exploratory test in the early period, this paper draws up the effective test method of accelerated stability and achieves the aim of making the accelerometer get into the steady state as soon as possible. This provides initial technical support for the enhancement of the accelerometer's long-term repeatability. View full abstract»
