Abstract:Breakdown events are studied in varying test set-ups with a high time resolution. Often a partial recovery from breakdown is observed
within a few ms. Parameters such as device area, stress conditions and parasitic elements prohibit the recovery if they result in a high system impedance. The results suggest the existence of a highly conductive path that can be annihilated during breakdown.
