      In this work, a physical model for MOSFET gate induced drain leakage current (GIDL) field has proposed witch takes into account of the trap assisted tunneling at low fields and explains a non linearity in Log –Lin Igidl/Fdg2 (1/Fdg) characteristic. The present model is applied on NMOS transistor. We have obtained a good agreement with experimental data.
