imec and Synopsys Inc. Unveil an Interconnect Resistivity Model
Jul 13 16
imec, and Synopsys Inc. have unveiled an interconnect resistivity model to support the screening and selection of alternative interconnect metals and liner-barrier materials at the 7nm node and beyond. With the continued scaling of advanced process nodes, the impact of parasitic interconnect resistance on the switching delay of standard cells rises considerably. The new model developed through this collaboration enables the evaluation of interconnect material and process options through simulations in the early stages of technology development, when wafer data is not available, and in the process optimization and integration stages of technology development, where it reduces expensive and time-consuming wafer-based iterations.
Ultratech-CNT Enters into Joint Development Program with IMEC for ASD technology
Jun 21 16
Ultratech, Inc. has announced that its Cambridge Nanotech business unit, Ultratech-CNT, has entered into a joint development program, or JDP, with IMEC in the field of area-selective deposition, or ASD, technology. The ASD project will concentrate on the study and use of Self-Assembled Monolayers (SAMs) as a means of functionalizing surfaces to selectively inhibit ALD-grown films. Ultratech-CNT's Savannah S300 ALD system will be used for this project to explore the use of SAMs and ALD films on 300-mm wafers using a single platform. Laurent Lecordier, Ph.D., senior research scientist at Ultratech-CNT, has been active in research that combines SAMs and ALD. Given the large potential for producing disruptive applications using the combined SAMs and ALD system, (including ASD, low-k pore filling, work function modifications, surface energy tuning, and novel materials growth), Ultratech-CNT believes this collaborative program will yield high impact results. The Savannah family of ALD systems (S100, S200, S300) has become the preferred system for university researchers worldwide engaged in ALD and looking for an affordable yet robust platform. With a wide array of process oriented options, such as low vapor pressure precursor delivery, and plasma, along with a range of real-time analytical options such as in-situ ellipsometry, in-situ quartz crystal microbalance, and mass spectrometry -- the Savannah enables the serious researcher to deposit and study a broad spectrum of single and multi-component ALD films and Self-assembled Monolayers.
Veeco Signs Joint Development Project Agreement with imec
Mar 3 16
Veeco Instruments Inc. has signed a joint development project, or JDP, agreement with imec to develop Gallium Nitride, or GaN, based, power electronic devices. The collaboration is expected to accelerate the development of highly-efficient, Gallium Nitride (GaN) based, power electronic devices using GaN Epi wafers created using Veeco's Propel Power GaN MOCVD system. imec has demonstrated gains in GaN layer uniformity and run-to-run repeatability with Veeco's Propel system, resulting in improved power device yields. The single wafer reactor incorporates Veeco's proprietary TurboDisc technology that delivers superior film uniformity, run-to-run control and defect levels compared to batch reactors.
