5 July 2000 Scalable pattern generator data path: for the future
Author Affiliations +
With the shrinking design rules for semiconductors mask data complexity increases continuously. The increasing use of OPC, which has become common for advanced masks, reinforces this trend. The requirements on data processing increase and make it a possible bottleneck. Increasing write times directly impact the cost of the photomask. These facts raise the question of how to design a data path that will not limit the writing speed and throughput of a pattern generator.
