This tool is based on a 2008 publication in the Proc. of International Reliability Physics Symposium by Dhanoop Varghese. It involves discovering the universality of HCI damage. Two example Idlin degradation datasets for DeNMOS and DePMOS transistors at various stress drain biases are provided. Degradation curves at various stress drain bias are automatically scaled to form the universal degradation curve. Voltage acceleration factor is calculated from the 1/s vs. Vd plot.

This tool also allows the user to upload their own datasets.
