Reliable VLSI circuits are crucial building blocks of high-quality electronic systems. An iterative simulation method of predicting the impact of progressive device degradation on circuit performance due to common microelectronic failure mechanisms is described. Hot-carrier effects on submicrometer digital and analog circuits are used to demonstrate the approach. Experimental results on precharging circuitry for sense amplifiers and operational amplifiers are presented.
