A lateral hole redistribution model was studied for the NROM cell retention after cycling. The model helped in developing a cycling in-sensitive retention process, based on drain engineering. The cycling effect on the EEPROM product retention loss for two different process types was also discussed. The prevention of vertical charge transport outside of the storage medium results in 10 years data storage with no single bit failure.
