Highly robust metallizations in ICs for high temperature and high current applications are needed. Special thick metal layers often known as “power metals” are added to achieve a higher current capability. But these metallizations suffer from reliability limitations as well. Therefore a new design for “power metals” was created(More)
The evaluation of via structures, metallisations as well as a miniaturisation of the layout dimensions lead to the determination of new test structures. The time for prediction of the reliability of such structures should be very short but also effective. For instance for fast reliability prediction, constant power or constant current tests can be used. Due(More)
