Channel hot carrier (CHC) stress is observed to result in higher variability of degradation in deeply-scaled nFinFETs than bias temperature instability (BTI) stress. Potential sources of this increased variation are discussed and the intrinsic time-dependent variability component is extracted using a novel methodology based on matched pairs. It is concluded that in deeply-scaled devices, CHC-induced time-dependent distributions will be bimodal, pertaining to bulk charging and to interface defect generation, respectively. The latter, high-impact mode will control circuit failure fractions at high percentiles.
