Paper Abstract

For the sub-90 nm node integrated circuits design rules, ITRS forecasts require minimal gate line width down to 55-35 nm. To reach such aggressive targets, most advanced optical lithography tools combined with all reticle enhancement techniques will be requested inducing important manufacturing cost and mask cycle time increase. In order to address prototyping market and reduce fabrication cost, shaped electron beam lithography may represent a technological alternative for cost reduction due to its high resolution and potential throughput capabilities. This paper is focused on the integration of this technology in standard ASIC plant, including resist process and overlay capabilities.
