A new simple analytical model for evaluating the programmed window of FLOTOX EEPROM cells at design level, for given programming waveforms and memory cell geometry, is proposed. The model enables optimisation of the memory cell geometry with respect to programmed window amplitude to be easily conducted, as well as correct selection of the programming conditions.
