Paper Abstract

Contamination control is a major issue in VLSI fabrication. Particle control, in particular, is crucial to the success and profitability of the manufacturing process. While most production lines have a particle monitoring system, the direct correlation between defect level and device yield is not always obvious, and therefore prioritizing quick yield improvement efforts can be difficult. This paper discusses a solution with the total particle control system which has provided a practical method for yield enhancement.
