The Delta V-th tail distribution becomes broad at fixed double traps, indicating that the number of traps greatly affects the worst RTN characteristics. It is also found that for both fixed single and fixed double traps, the Delta V-th distribution in the lowest cell threshold voltage (V-th) state shows the broadest distribution among all cell V-th states. This is because the drain current flows at the channel surface in the lowest cell V-th state, while at a high cell V-th, it flows at the deeper position owing to the fringing coupling between the control gate (CG) and the channel. In this work, the Delta V-th distribution with the number of traps following the Poisson distribution is also considered to cope with the variations in trap number. As a result, it is found that the number of traps is an important factor for understanding RTN characteristics. In addition, considering trap position in the tunnel oxide thickness direction is also an important factor.
