Two-stage hot-carrier-induced degradations are thoroughly investigated in deep submicrometre partially depleted P-channel SIMOX MOSFETs. A reliable method for lifetime prediction is proposed for a wide gate length range. The saturation level between the power and logarithmic laws, which depends on the various degradation mechanisms, plays an important role in device lifetime prediction.
