A comparative study of the reliability issues of triplegate and planar FETs processed on the same silicon-on-insulator wafer is presented. It is shown that the triple-gate architecture does not alter the behavior of the time-dependent dielectric breakdown (BD) for different gate voltages and temperatures. The apparent higher Weibull slope observed in planar devices with respect to the triple-gate devices is ascribed to the area dependence of the time-to-BD detection. In spite of the different surface orientations, low-frequency noise measurements indicate similar values of the interface trap density for triple-gate and planar FETs.

Abstract

A comparative study of the reliability issues of triplegate and planar FETs processed on the same silicon-on-insulator wafer is presented. It is shown that the triple-gate architecture does not alter the behavior of the time-dependent dielectric breakdown (BD) for different gate voltages and temperatures. The apparent higher Weibull slope observed in planar devices with respect to the triple-gate devices is ascribed to the area dependence of the time-to-BD detection. In spite of the different surface orientations, low-frequency noise measurements indicate similar values of the interface trap density for triple-gate and planar FETs.
