Effect of negative bias temperature instability on the single event upset response of 40 nm flip-flops

Academic Article


  • Negative bias temperature instability has been experimentally demonstrated to increase the cross-section of the single event response for 40 nm flip-flops. Analysis on the underlying mechanisms, including threshold voltage shift, is presented. © 1963-2012 IEEE.
