Emerging Yield and Reliability Challenges in Nanometer CMOS Technologies


With further scaling of nanometer CMOS technologies, yield and reliability become an increasing challenge. This paper reviews the most important phenomena affecting yield and reliability. For each effect, the basic physical mechanisms causing the effect and its impact on transistor parameters are described. Possible solutions to cope/handle with these effects on the design level are discussed as well.
