Paper Abstract

This study will specifically address the results of integrating IMP Ti and MOCVD TiN on a high vacuum system. Results of design of experiments used for process characterization and optimizing device parametric such as contact and via resistance will be discussed, in particular with respect to unlanded via schemes. Finally, Cost of Ownership calculations will be presented in comparison to conventional PVD technologies. In summary, the integration of IMP Ti and MOCVD TiN enables the deposition of a highly cost effective, low resistivity, ultra-thin, and low- temperature liners for sub 0.18 micrometers technology node thereby enabling > 500 MHz microprocessor technology.
