Owens, Gethin Lloyd (2007) Design of a reliability methodology: Modelling the influence of temperature on gate Oxide reliability. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.
An Integrated Reliability Methodology (IRM) is presented that encompasses the changes that technology growth has brought with it and includes several new device degradation models. Each model is based on a physics of failure approach and includes on the effects of temperature. At all stages the models are verified experimentally on modern deep sub-micron devices. The research provides the foundations of a tool which gives the user the opportunity to make appropriate trade-offs between performance and reliability, and that can be implemented in the early stages of product development.
