This work presents a novel methodology for a physically-based, layout-dependent nitride liner stress model that works with readily-available compact models. The methodology includes a data-calibrated, semi-empricial model and is tightly-coupled to circuit netlist extraction for accurate results. The model formulation is summarized and simulation results for an SOI implementation are provided.
