Described is a method of monitoring critical circuit parameters for "end-of-life" performance impacts and providing feedback control to compensate for the resulting performance degradations as the device ages. Monitored critical circuit parameters such as current, delay, device voltage, or threshold are compared against a reference circuit to dynamically determine "end-of-life" type performance impacts.
