4 September 1998 Applications of Forcefill aluminum for contact and via metallization
Author Affiliations +
The application of Forcefill®, the high pressure holefill technique for 0.5 micrometer device production is discussed in this paper. For process optimization holefill characteristics are presented as function of Forcefill® pressure, temperature and process time. Holefill analysis is performed by SEM plan view and cross section. SEM results are correlated to resistance measurements. The productivity of the Forcefill® process is discussed also. Data are presented showing the very low particle additions achievable with this technique.
