This issue has two articles; the first discusses the latest TCAD models for simulating negative bias temperature instability, which impacts PMOS device reliability. The second article reviews the effect of hot carriers in semiconductor device operation and reliability, and illustrates the combination of hot-carrier energy and degradation models in simulating channel-initiated secondary-electron (CHISEL) current in flash memory cells.
