Productivity data is essential to success in 2014

Solid State Technology, February 2014

We expect the demand for productivity
data to be at an all-time high in
2014. Semiconductor manufacturers are
under pressure to increase the yields of
new, increasingly complex manufacturing
processes. In the front-end, manufacturers are aggregating
data across the fab to provide a more complete
picture of the process interactions and improve
tool productivity. In the back-end, manufacturers
are implementing new “more than Moore” technologies,
including three-dimensional ICs and advanced
packaging processes that increase computing density
by means other than reducing the size and increasing
the number of transistors. These approaches require
the integration of data not only across a fab, but from
multiple fabs and factories around the world.
