Resistive gate defects are unusual and difficult to detect with conventional techniques [1] especially on advanced devices manufactured with deep submicron SOI technologies. An advanced localization technique such as Scanning Capacitance Imaging is essential for localizing these defects, which can be followed by DC probing, dC/dV, CV (Capacitance-Voltage) measurements to completely characterize the defect. This paper presents a case study demonstrating this work flow of characterization techniques.
