A physics-based modeling framework is proposed to calculate the threshold voltage shift (ΔVT) in planar High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) n-MOSFETs for positive bias temperature instability (PBTI). Overall ΔVT is estimated using the uncorrelated contributions from the Trap Generation (TG) and the electron trapping subcomponents. The time evolution of ΔVT, measured using an ultrafast measure-stress-measure method during DC and AC stress and after Dc stress, is predicted for different experimental conditions. The modeled TG component is verified by independent direct-current I-V method. The proposed model explains PBTI in differently processed HKMG gate stacks.
