Paper Abstract

This paper summarizes several different types of current induced (excess) noise time domain waveforms and the power spectra behavior associated with specific ULSI/VLSI interconnection problems. Importance of maintaining waveform stationarity when using 1/f2 noise to detect electromigration is illustrated. In addition, non-stationary waveforms, associated with thin films with high degrees of stress are reported. A discussion of large magnitude 1/f spectra associated with the presence of film voids, poor step coverage and/or wire bonding problems is presented.
