Device and circuit implications of double-patterning — A designer's perspective


Double-patterning lithography is a choice for critical layers in 32 nm and 22 nm technologies. Double patterning lithography techniques require additional masks to manufacture a single device layer. Consequently, double-patterning lithography brings overlay as a challenge that introduces additional variability to gate coupling capacitances. This additional… (More)
