Paper Abstract

Multi column cell (MCC) exposure system is a promising candidate for the next generation lithography tool. The concept of MCC is parallelization of the electron beam columns with character projection (CP) [1]. In this paper, we would like to describe current CP techniques being used for product manufacturing. We also would like to introduce CP based EBDW method to draw automatically routed wiring area with 14 nm node technology of 20nm half-pitch (hp) case. Pattern density influence for process margin and shot noise tolerance consideration are discussed. Feasibility study of the model character set for router generated wiring drawing is presented.
