Paper Abstract

A completely automated vision system for inspection of in-process and fully patterned integrated circuits (ICs) has been demonstrated. Applied to the inspection of a Darlington IC, the EYESEE system is shown to effectively replace an operator in performing inspections such as those called for in MIL-STD-883B, method 2010. EYESEE has been extended to inspection of certain LSI and VLSI devices for characterization and measurement of line widths and critical dimensions, mask and reticle registration accuracy, and gross and fine defects. EYESEE general video image processing technology has reached the point where technical feasibility has been established for automating many semiconductor inspection tasks. A comprehensive review of other relevant computer vision techniques used within the semiconductor manufacturing industry is presented.
