Session 1—Yield Enhancement
Co-Chairs: Qintao Zhang, Applied Materials | Gary Green, Green Consulting | Sagar Kekare, KLA | Brett Williams, ON Semiconductor | Reshmi Mitra, Samsung Austin Semiconductor
Yield improvement in today’s fabs requires a deep understanding of the root cause of fails and tight process control. This session covers papers that provide details of root causes of yield fails, addresses methodologies enabling tight process control and pattern matching techniques using machine learning for accelerated yield learning.
