Different reliability scenarios are analyzed, i.e., temperature influence, impact of high ID and dynamic operation conditions. To explain the CHC damage behavior in short channel devices, we divide the total CHC degradation in two components: the classical CHC damage located at drain side and the degradation produced by the voltage drop over the gate dielectric, which can be considered as bias temperature instability (BTI).
