In sub-1/4㎛ NMOSFET with STI (Shallow Trench Isolation), the anomalous hump phenomenon of subthreshold region, due to capped p-TEOS/SiN induced defect, is reported. The hump effect was significantly observed as channel length is reduced, which is completely different from previous reports. Channel boron dopant redistribution due to the defect should be considered to improve hump characteristics besides considerations of STI corner and recess.
