In current CMOS nanometer technologies, aging effects may appear after relatively short operating times, compared to the expected lifetime of circuits. Therefore, there is an increasing need for on-chip aging monitoring, especially in high-performance, safety critical systems. This paper presents a programmable aging sensor that can be embedded in field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based designs,...
