Program Introduction

Keynote Address
DfT in Deep Submicron Process Monitoring
W.P. Maly (Carnegie Mellon University, USA)

Abstract: Deep Submicron (DSM) technologies will soon enable fabrication of a billion transistors IC. To test such IC the application of DfT is the only way to go. But, DfT decreases failure observability. Poor failure observability, in turn, causes problems in process development and yield learning - two basic ingredients of a healthy DSM operation. In this presentation trade-offs between IC testability and failure observability will be discussed. Vision of DfT based process monitoring allowing for on-line failure characterization will be proposed as well.
