For the first time, we demonstrate that A-G model extracted from short Vg-accelerated stresses can predict both long term DC and AC NBTI under low and dynamic operation Vg. This is achieved by successfully separating non-saturating defects from the saturating ones, allowing reliable extraction of power exponents needed for long term prediction. Unlike R-D model, A-G model does not require solving differential equations for AC NBTI. This saves computation time significantly, especially for high-frequency that needs small time-step, and makes it readily implementable in SPICE-like simulators.
