A new breakdown model for gate oxides under constant current stresses is proposed, which directly relates the oxide lifetime to the stress current density and includes the statistical nature of oxide breakdown using the effective oxide thickness. It is shown that this model can reliably predict the TDDB of oxides for any current stress levels and oxide areas.
