Predicting EUV Stochastic Defect Density

Extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography targets patterning pitches below 50 nm, which is beyond the resolution of an immersion lithography system without multiple patterning. In the process of exposing smaller pitches, stochastic patterning effects, i.e., random local pattern errors from unwanted resist removal or lack … Read More

INNOVA PDM, a New Era for Planning and Tracking Chip Design Resources is Born
by Daniel Nenni on 12-01-2022 at 6:00 am

Innova PDM

No doubt that the design success of nowadays system on chips (SoCs) is directly linked to the success of cost control. More market opportunities are open for less expensive system on chips and electronic systems.

Both the design cost prediction and the resource tracking during the design process, are key to such a success

Predicting… Read More
