Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. Key Developments

Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. and Leti Collaborate to Enhance Process Control Schemes for Advanced Lithography

Leti and Nova Measuring Instruments announced a joint program to develop innovative metrology methods to enable process control solutions for multi e-beam and directed self-assembly (DSA) advanced lithography techniques. Based on this new joint initiative, Nova has already installed its advanced suite of products at Leti's facility in France. In order to meet the fabrication process challenges at the most advanced technology nodes, several lithography technologies are currently evaluated beyond mainstream multi-patterning optical lithography. The main alternatives to be considered include DSA and multi-beam direct-write lithography (ML2). The joint program between Leti and Nova will focus on developing innovative process-control solutions to address the challenges related to these new patterning methods. The collaboration will utilize Nova's T600 multi-channel stand-alone optical metrology platform combined with its innovative MARS modeling software and the recently introduced Hybrid solution, which combines several measurements from different metrology platforms.

Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. Announces New Hybrid Metrology Concept

Nova Measuring Instruments Ltd. announced a new hybrid metrology concept, which combines measurements from two of its metrology platforms - X-Ray and Optical. With this newly introduced solution, thin film and material parameters (measured on X-Ray metrology platforms) are combined with profile and geometry parameters (measured on Optical CD metrology platforms) for better process control in the most advanced technology nodes. This unique offering utilizes the synergy between the technologies, resulting in superior metrology performance that supports tighter process control schemes for faster time to market. The new hybrid solution relies on Nova's novel optical and X-Ray modeling algorithms and is being evaluated by several key customers.
