Paper Abstract

An approach to parameter sensitivity methodology for OPC modeling is enhanced, automated, and applied to generate production-quality models for a 32-nm logic node poly layer. Two parameter sensitivity models are generated and compared to a baseline model from the same experimental dataset. The three models are thoroughly investigated to demonstrate that parameter sensitivity can enhance advanced OPC models with essentially no impact on the time required for model optimization. Results also indicate that parameter sensitivity, if used improperly, can decrease model quality.
