The Hot Carrier
System's software package has an intuitive user interface that simplifies setting the desired device parameters, stress conditions, and failure criteria.
The demonstration of this hot electron transfer establishes that a highly efficient hot carrier
solar cell is not just a theoretical concept, but an experimental possibility.
The qualified tools include the RelPro+(TM) and RelXpert(TM) products for Hot Carrier
Injection (HCI) effects, and the AnalogXpert(TM) product for device mismatch simulation analysis for TSMC's analog/mixed-signal (AMS) process technologies.
Sample tests provided with this software release include Hot Carrier
Injection (HCI) (or Channel Hot Carrier
(CHC)), Negative Bias Temperature Instability (NBTI), Time Dependent Dielectric Breakdown (TDDB), and Electro-Migration (EM).
This customer will be using our Model 1164 primarily in copper applications that require a variety of electromigration (EM), hot carrier
injection (HCI), and time dependent dielectric breakdown (TDDB) testing.
The products include BsimPro+, RFPro, NoisePro(TM) for noise characterization, SIGMAPro(TM) for statistical modeling and RelPro+(TM) for hot carrier
and lifetime extraction.
These tools will help to save us time on hot carrier
model parameter extraction and will prove invaluable to those customers that need these parameters.
The MRF9045P is a 45-watt RF LDMOS discrete transistor in the new space-saving, power RF plastic package (PRFP-1), and incorporates Motorola's new device architecture for maximum ruggedness against Hot Carrier
Injection (HCI) effects.
To improve our customers' product reliability, we developed physical models for predicting failure rates when electromigration, metal oxide and hot carrier
issues affect a product's life cycle.
Based upon Motorola's fourth generation (HV4) RF LDMOS device technology, the MRF19000 series also provides maximum protection from hot carrier
injection effects (<10% Vgs over 20 years), while at the same time not sacrificing RF performance.
