29 June 1984 Cad As The Foundation For Quality Assurance In VLSI Fabrication
Author Affiliations +
Fabrication of VLSI devices with complex designs and one micron geometries presents a major challenge in the area of quality assurance. The original CAD design can be used as the reference for inspection, if a mechanism is provided for compensating for the effects of the process on the design. Using this approach, Contrex has developed a system for wafer inspection that accurately predicts the shape of a pattern in photoresist, and is able to detect defects as small as 0.3 microns.
