Abstract
This paper presents an in-line monitoring scheme and zone partitioning experiment. An automated laser based wafer inspection system, linked with a defect data management station was integrated into the fab process flow as part of a defect reduction strategy. The results emphasize the feasibility of such a strategy as well as the ease of integration once such a strategy is established.
