The characteristics of direct-tunneling gate oxide metal-oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET)s are described. The effect of gate leakage current on MOSFET characteristics drops off as the gate length is reduced. Extremely good DC and AC performance has been realized using ultra-thin oxides down to 1.5 nm. Improved hot-carrier reliability and high oxide breakdown voltage have also been observed.
