The hot-carrier reliability of S4D MOSFETs was investigated for the first time. The S4D structure offers a large improvement in current degradation as compared with the LDD structure, despite the greater current driving-ability. We estimate that a 0.2 ¿m gate length S4D n-MOSFET will operate with good hot-carrier reliability for more than 10 years at a supply voltage of 2 V.
