Paper Abstract

Test pattern data set filtering based on the concept of parameter sensitivity is proposed to reduce OPC time-to-model requirements. The concept of parameter sensitivity-based filtering is discussed briefly, followed by a methodology to apply the filtering to test pattern sets prior to data measurement along with a number of potential data filtering algorithms. The proposed methodology is then applied to an experimental data set targeted for a 32nm logic process. Qualitative observations are made on the initial data filtering, followed by quantitative metrics based on best-fit models for each of the data filtering algorithms. Results demonstrate that a comparable model is achievable using the proposed data filtering methods and one of the filtering algorithms.
