This paper presents a numerical investigation of the random telegraph noise amplitude in nanoscale MOS devices based on the statistical impedance field method. This method allows a strong reduction of the computational burdens required for the calculation of the amplitude statistics with respect to conventional Monte Carlo models based on the numerical implementation of microscopic differences on the simulated device structure, allowing the exploration of lower probability levels. Despite a rather good estimation of the amplitude statistics, however, the method results in relevant inaccuracies when looking at the single Monte Carlo samples, due to the linear approximations involved

Abstract

This paper presents a numerical investigation of the random telegraph noise amplitude in nanoscale MOS devices based on the statistical impedance field method. This method allows a strong reduction of the computational burdens required for the calculation of the amplitude statistics with respect to conventional Monte Carlo models based on the numerical implementation of microscopic differences on the simulated device structure, allowing the exploration of lower probability levels. Despite a rather good estimation of the amplitude statistics, however, the method results in relevant inaccuracies when looking at the single Monte Carlo samples, due to the linear approximations involved
