Abstract
As the OPC scripts become more and more complex for advanced technology nodes, the number of parameters used to control the convergence increases drastically. This paper does not aim to determine what a "good convergence criteria" is but rather to review the efficiency of the existing OPC solutions in terms of accuracy and parameter dependence, to solve simple design layouts. Three different OPC solutions, including a "standard algorithm", a "local convergence OPC" and a more holistic OPC, are compared on a design containing lines and line-ends. A cost function is used to determine the quality of the convergence for each type of structure. A map of convergence (iteration vs OPC Option) will be deduced for each structure.
