Abstract: The recent trend of mixed technology processes for versatile chip design has prompted the need for 5 V only CMOS compatible non-volatile memory devices. However, for high-speed applications flash EEPROM devices are generally used but often require external power supplies for the writing cycles. The High Injection MOS (HIMOS) cell can be programmed at high speed with a 5 V power supply and so is promising for low-density high-speed applications where only a single power supply is available. To aid in the design and optimisation of the HIMOS device a 2-D numerical device simulator HFIELDs has been adapted to simulate the hot-electron injection currents. This is the first time that numerical simulations of a split gate type flash EEPROM device have been reported and comparisons with measured data show good agreement.
