A.I. Enabled Trace Analytics Simplifies Root Cause Analysis and Eliminates Events That Cause Yield Loss

Traditional root cause analysis in manufacturing uses summary data, which is ineffective in the face of complex issues stemming from subtle defects in a process. Full trace analytics, backed by powerful Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) algorithms, uses the entirety of all the sensor and tool data available in a production line for analysis, enabling fabrication engineers to quickly and accurately focus on the causes of issues that negatively affect yield, large and small.February 07, 2019

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
