Abstract

The distribution of gate oxide breakdown is not driven by the conventionally-proposed thickness but by the gate voltage, and follows the minimum distribution of a lognormal stochastic variable. We ascribe the disparity between the previous results and ours to the narrower ranges of thickness and voltage in the previous experiments. The new findings will be a key basis for investigating the reliability thinning limit.
