Voltage-stress-induced leakage in S-nm thermal oxides was studied. A correlation between the leakage current and the charge-pumping current was evident in a series of voltage stress, annealing, and restress tests. The close correlation suggests that the leakage may be a result of the oxide-trap-assisted tunneling.
