Reliability Improvement in Multi-level Cu/SiOC Low k Integration


In this paper, inter layer dielectric characteristic ramped voltage breakdown (VBD) performance of multiplayer Cu/SiOC interconnect was studied. The results showed that the breakdown reliability is highly process-related. Some dominating factors, such as via etching process, integration scheme used and Cu/dielectric interface etc., were discussed and… (More)
