Design for Manufacturability and Yield for Nano-Scale CMOS by Charles Chiang, Jamil Kawa

By Charles Chiang, Jamil Kawa

As we process the 32 nm CMOS expertise node the layout and production groups are facing a lithography process that has to print circuit artifacts which are considerably below part the wavelength of the sunshine resource used, with new fabrics, with tighter pitches, and better point ratio metallurgies. This truth has led to 3 major manufacturability concerns that experience to be addressed: printability, planarization, and intra-die variability. Addressing extensive the basics impacting these 3 concerns in any respect the phases of the layout approach isn't a luxurious you'll be able to forget about. Manufacturability and yield are actually one and a similar and aren't any longer a fabrication, packaging, and try matters; they're the worry of the complete IC neighborhood. Yield and manufacturability need to be designed in, and they're everybody’s responsibility.

Design for Manufacturability and Yield for Nano-Scale CMOS walks the reader via the entire elements of manufacturability and yield in a nano-CMOS method and the way to deal with every one element on the right layout step beginning with the layout and structure of normal cells and the way to yield-grade libraries for serious sector and lithography artifacts via position and path, CMP version dependent simulation and dummy-fill insertion, masks making plans, simulation and production, and during statistical layout and statistical timing closure of the layout. It indicators the clothier to the pitfalls to observe for and to the nice practices which can increase a design’s manufacturability and yield. This ebook is a needs to learn ebook the intense practising IC dressmaker and a very good primer for any graduate pupil reason on having a occupation in IC layout or in EDA software development.

3 DFM Categories and Classifications There are essentially two major categories of DFM/DFY namely first time loss and time related failures. In this book we focus on first time loss only although many of the time related failures can and should be addressed at the design stage, but are simply more appropriate for a circuits design book or a book on IC reliability and failure analysis than for a book dealing with DFM/DFY. 16). 1 First Time Failures First time failures refers to the situation where a chip comes out with a severity of functionality failure ranging from silicon that is fully operational but does not meet the product specification in timing, power, IEEE standards, or a combination of those issues, to silicon that comes out with fatal failures that is reflected in the chip simply showing no life at all.

The only free variables left in the final formula are the layout parameters. With the explicit formula for short and for open critical areas available one only needs to go through all the objects in the layout once to extract the indicated layout parameters. At the end of extraction the extracted layout parameters are substituted into the formula and the average total critical area value is made available immediately for all different defect sizes. This discussion on computational complexity is clearly for calculating the total average critical area.

2, which , as obvious from the Equation, is a key design yield determining parameter. The α is a “clustering parameter” introduced to correct the effect of defect clustering. It is especially useful for large devices where clustering is more significant to improve yield 24 Random Defects prediction. It is also obvious that in order to maximize yield, that number needs to be minimized. In more advanced yield models, D0 was replaced by D where D, rather than being a constant number D0 is now a defect density distribution function f(D).
