Reliability phenomena are usually studied as DC effects at first. AC effects become important to setting realistic reliability acceptance criteria and predicting circuit reliability as technology scaling gradually erodes the margin of safety. This paper reviews the AC effects in hot-electron effect, electromigration, and gate oxide breakdown and stability.
