kla-tencor corp (KLAC) Key Developments

KLA-Tencor Corporation Introduces the WaferSight PWG Patterned Wafer Geometry Measurement System

KLA-Tencor Corporation introduced the WaferSight(TM) PWG patterned wafer geometry measurement system, the LMS IPRO6 reticle pattern placement metrology system and the K-T Analyzer(R) 9.0 advanced data analysis system. These three new products support KLA-Tencor's unique 5D(TM) patterning control solution, which addresses five elements of patterning process control--the three geometrical dimensions of device structures, time-to-results and overall equipment efficiency. The 5D patterning control solution is being developed to drive optimal patterning results through the characterization, optimization and monitoring of processes inside and outside the lithography module. By combining these measurements with intelligent feedback and feed forward process control loops, this solution can help chipmakers obtain faster, more cost-effective ramps of multi-patterning, spacer pitch splitting and other advanced patterning technologies using existing process equipment. Installed at multiple IC manufacturers for development and production of advanced devices, the WaferSight PWG measures patterned wafer geometry after a wide range of processes, helping chipmakers identify and monitor variations that affect patterning. By incorporating industry-unique vertical wafer hold to minimize gravitational distortion and a sampling density of 3.5 million data points per wafer, the WaferSight PWG produces highly accurate wafer shape data that can be fed forward to the lithography module for wafer shape-optimized scanner corrections that improve pattern overlay. The WaferSight PWG also uniquely measures the wafer's front and back surfaces concurrently, generating wafer thickness metrics that are used to help reduce wafer-induced scanner focus errors. The WaferSight PWG is based on the WaferSight platform, which has strong adoption by worldwide wafer manufacturers for bare wafer geometry quality assurance.
