The scaling of transistors has numerous advantages such as increased memory density, less power consumption and better performance; but on the other hand, they also give rise to many reliability issues. One of the major reliability issue is the hot carrier injection and the effect it has on device degradation over time which causes serious circuit malfunctions. Hot carrier injection has been studied from early 1980's and a lot of research has been done on the various hot carrier injection mechanisms and how the devices get damaged due to this effect. However, most of the existing hot carrier degradation models …
