Xact200 performs cutting-edge TEM sample preparation in line with Semiconductor and Nanotechnology roadmap requirements, for next generation physical Failure Analysis and characterization.
This paper outlines the theory and practice of the test vehicle design, the assembly and test method used to generate data, and then discusses selected test results and failure modes determined by physical failure analysis.
Test failures were traced back to layout locations and the root cause was determined using physical failure analysis to correlate the failures to specific design-based limiters that could be eliminated using DFM enhancements.
Tessent YieldInsight customers have been able to reduce their cycle time to root cause from months to days, reduce the amount of wasted physical failure analysis (PFA), and uncover previously-hidden systematic yield limiters in high-volume manufacturing.
In precision mode, it precisely locates the root cause defects, which can then be verified in a physical failure analysis lab.
We have found that Mentor's unique chain and at-speed diagnosis capabilities accurately diagnose failing die and can effectively pin-point problem areas within the die, even when the problem is internal to a cell, which is very important for physical failure analysis.
Synopsys will be demonstrating its unified design and test solution for layout-driven DFT synthesis -- the fastest path to DFT closure, and will highlight its industry-leading physical failure analysis solution for deep sub-micron test using Credence EmiScope(R) -- accelerating test analysis from days to hours.
Nasdaq:MENT) today announced an integrated solution enabling high-volume diagnosis for logical and physical failure analysis in the semiconductor manufacturing test flow.
