Length: Approximately one hour
Yield improvement and production engineers working on today’s ICs encounter many challenges as defects affecting device operation go undetected by traditional in-line techniques. Electrical Failure Analysis (EFA) is a suite of techniques that helps the modern day fab increase yields by isolating faults to areas small enough for Physical Failure Analysis (PFA). In this Webinar, we showcase a few of the proven EFA fault isolation techniques and describe how EFA helps to characterize the underlying defects.
Jordan Fine is a Staff Applications Development engineer for the Circuit Analysis group at DCG Systems. His primary focus is the development of new optical fault isolation (OFI) techniques for the Meridian and WaferScan platforms. He also supports a worldwide customer base that debugs the most advanced technology nodes using OFI. Dr. Fine holds a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California and has published multiple papers in the fields of molecular physics and electronic failure analysis.
