Full Trace Analytics Simplifies Root Cause Analysis, Pinpoints Yield Impacting Events Quicker Than Ever

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 at 1:00 pm EST

In semiconductor manufacturing, traditional root cause analysis using FDC summary data is not always effective in solving complex issues, especially when the defect signals are too subtle to detect. Full trace analytics enables the discovery of these hidden signals. This allows fab engineers to accurately pinpoint the root causes of yield-impacting issues. This webcast will discuss several use cases to showcase how advanced full trace analytics can help not only in provide accurate results, but can also simplify the root cause analysis process and reducing time-to-root-cause, resulting in better yields, lower production costs and increased engineering productivity. In this LIVE webcast, BISTel's Chief Product Management Officer, Gabe Villareal will discuss how BISTel is leading the industry with its new full trace analytics to simply root cause analysis, which enables fab engineers to pinpoint the issues than impact yield and productivity quicker than ever. Full trace analytics enables the comprehensive examination of process trace data to allow the detection of abnormalities and deviations to the finest details.

Jumpstart Your Reliability Verification with Foundry-Supported Rule Decks

For many, formal reliability verification is a new process. Foundry-qualified and foundry-maintained reliability rule decks enable design and IP companies alike to establish baseline robustness and reliability criteria without committing extensive time and resources to the creation and support of proprietary verification solutions. In addition, as reliability verification needs expand, customer demand drives the development and qualification of new and augmented reliability rules.August 30, 2018

Maximize uptime and optimize maintenance with AMS

Yukinobu Hayashi, Senior Field Applications Engineer from CyberOptics, explains the application uses of the WaferSense® Auto Multi Sensor™ (AMS) for Leveling, Vibration, and Relative Humidity (RH) that facilitates maximizing uptime and optimizes maintenance. The combination of these attributes in a thin wafer shaped all-in-one wireless sensor, provides engineers the ability to acquire highly repeatable measurements of tilt, vibration, and humidity while under a vacuum and without venting a chamber. The quantitative numeric results give engineers an objective basis for comparisons, and analysis that can be reproducible across multiple users over extended periods of time. June 13, 2018
