Accelerating Yield and Failure Analysis with Diagnosis



Learn about methodologies for yield improvement and defect identification for digital semiconductor devices. Scan diagnosis, a software-based technique, can effectively identify defects in digital logic and scan chains. This flow has been successfully applied in industrial practice to achieve a high physical failure analysis success rate and improved yield. The webinar will also cover recent advancements in diagnosis technology and industrial case studies.

What You Will Learn

In this webinar you will learn about ways that allow failure analysis to regain its effectiveness and position as a key contributor to yield improvement in digital semiconductor devices, as well as significantly improve the analysis of field returns.
Topics to be covered include:

  • Best practices for data collection and diagnosis of digital semiconductor devices
  • Statistical analysis of diagnosis results to pick the correct dies for an effective failure analysis
  • Layout-aware diagnosis
  • Scan chain diagnosis
  • Correlating diagnosis and DFM analysis results
  • Case studies
