Applied Materials, Inc. and Magma Design Automation, Inc. announced today that they have integrated Magma’s CAD (computer-aided design)-based navigation and yield analysis software with Applied’s advanced inspection systems. This unique combination of design and manufacturing tools has accelerated lithography qualification and improved chip yields at multiple customers for the development and production of advanced technology nodes.

“The introduction of CAD-based inspection technology for defect analysis and monitoring at GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab 1 has helped improve defect management efficiency and reduce cycle time for process optimization, ” said Remo Kirsch, manager of Contamination Free Manufacturing at GLOBALFOUNDRIES Fab 1 in Dresden, Germany. “Both our production and development lines now rely on this technology to help guarantee process quality and yield stability.”

As device features shrink, achieving acceptable yields becomes increasingly challenging. Complex interactions between process conditions and design produces “hot spots” – areas where the printed pattern deviates from the design intent – which must be eliminated before a chip can go into production. Integrating design and real-time inspection data provides customers with an innovative way to identify hot spots in a production environment and improve their product qualification process. In addition, the conditions that produce hot spots can be fed back to the design process – improving subsequent designs. This is a critical benefit in today’s fast-changing, high-mix chip fabrication operations.

“As product development cycles become shorter and shorter, the game has changed from yield maximization to yield ramp, ” said Ronen Benzion, vice president and general manager of Applied’s Process Diagnostics and Control Business Unit. “Our groundbreaking work with Magma will help our customers speed their new products to market and reduce time-to-revenue.”

“Without the ability to overcome litho qualification roadblocks rapidly, 22nm designs will be extremely time-consuming and expensive to bring to volume production, ” said AnkushOberai, general manager and vice president of Magma’s Fab Analysis Business Unit. “By combining Magma’s CAD-based analysis technology with Applied’s advanced defect inspection and review systems, we can compress design cycles and accelerate learning for future product generations.”
