Abstract

The triggering of gg-nMOS and field-oxide devices, essential for optimized protection design, is addressed fly TLP-pulsed emission microscopy. Current non-uniformity and instability effects in snapback operation under DC and TLP conditions are demonstrated. The comprehensive correlation of emission and electrical behavior allows an improved interpretation of device operation. Technological influences on the trigger uniformity are discussed.
