The Limiting Factor

Parametric yield loss is an increasing fraction of total yield loss. Much of this originates in lithography in the form of pattern-limited yield. In particular, the ITRS has identified CD control at the 65 nm technology node as a potential roadblock with no known solutions. At 65 nm, shrinking design rules and narrowing process windows will become serious yield limiters.
