Abstract
A general predictive method based on Canonical Correlation Analysis (CCA) is developed to identify globally correlated process modes that are responsible for the spatial variability in deep nanoscale semiconductor manufacturing. This multivariate statistical method overcomes the limitations of ordinary multiple linear regression technique by introducing canonical variates with certain properties which allow us to construct a transfer matrix to relate the predictand vector to the predictor vector directly. Principal Component Analysis (PCA), another multivariate statistical technique, is introduced to find the orthogonal modes that explain the larger fraction of the total process variations. We also discuss the constraint of sample number in CCA and propose using the leading principal components (PCAs) to replace the original raw data in correlation analysis.
