What’s the Next-Gen Litho Tech? Maybe All of Them

semimd_logoBy Jeff Dorsch

The annual SPIE Advanced Lithography symposium in San Jose, Calif., hasn’t offered a clear winner in the next-generation lithography race. It’s becoming clearer, however, that 193i immersion and extreme-ultraviolet lithography will co-exist in the future, while directed self-assembly, nanoimprint lithography, and maybe even electron-beam direct-write technology will fit into the picture, too.

At the same time, plasma deposition and etching processes are assuming a greater interdependence with 193i, especially when it comes to multiple patterning, such as self-aligned double patterning, self-aligned quadruple patterning, and self-aligned octuple patterning (yes, there is such a thing!).

Directed self assembly may offer similar benefits to EUV, process modeling study says

By Luke Collins, Tech Design Forum

Tech Design Forum Logo

Directed self assembly (DSA) techniques may offer similar advantages in terms of process variation control as EUV lithography, according to a study carried out using 3D behavioral process modeling techniques.

This could reduce fab cycle times, ease process integration and save costs in advanced semiconductor processes, especially for DRAMs, whose regular structures are well-suited to the use of DSA.

Advanced Lithography and Process Variation Modeling Using SEMulator3D

By:   Jimmy Gu, Coventor Technical Staff

One of the top and probably toughest challenges that process integrators are facing today in a silicon fab is process variability. As a former process integrator working hard to ramp up the yield of 22nm FinFET technology, I saw it first-hand. Looking back, I wish I was equipped with the SEMulator3D virtual fabrication platform, which is designed to address this type of process variability challenge. With the recent release of SEMulator3D 5.1, its process variability toolbox has just received a powerful new addition: the ability to model line edge roughness (LER) and line width roughness (LWR) in lithography. read more…

On Tuesday evening December 8th at IEDM, Coventor held a panel discussion entitled the “The Last Half Nanometer”. Coventor is a leading provider of simulation software used to design processes. This is my third year attending the Coventor panel discussion at IEDM and they are always excellent with very strong panels and discussion. The panel was made up of David Fried CTO of Coventor, Alek Chen from ASML, Aaron Theon of IMEC, and Subramanian Iyer from UCLA. Subramanian acted as both a panelist and the moderator.
