Silicon on sapphire (SOS) MOSFETs are light hole devices. Hot carrier induced degradation of SOS FETs are found to correlate with both substrate and gate currents. DC stressing experiments show that the effects of hot light holes are mainly charge trapping, and cause very little interface state generation. At gate biases that give rise to mixed carrier stressing, interface states are created in significant quantities. Mechanisms of hot carrier degradation in light hole devices are found to be consistent with those proposed for bulk silicon devices.
