Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality2 VLSI Chip Yield n A manufacturing defect is a finite chip area with electrically malfunctioning circuitry caused by errors in the fabrication process. n A chip with no manufacturing defect is called a good chip. n Fraction (or percentage) of good chips produced in a manufacturing process is called the yield. Yield is denoted by symbol Y. n Cost of a chip: Cost of fabricating and testing a wafer ——————————————————————— Yield x Number of chip sites on the wafer

Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality6 Defect Level or Reject Ratio n Defect level (DL) is the ratio of faulty chips among the chips that pass tests. n DL is measured as parts per million (ppm). n DL is a measure of the effectiveness of tests. n DL is a quantitative measure of the manufactured product quality. For commercial VLSI chips a DL greater than 500 ppm is considered unacceptable.

7
Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality7 Determination of DL n From field return data: Chips failing in the field are returned to the manufacturer. The number of returned chips normalized to one million chips shipped is the DL. n From test data: Fault coverage of tests and chip fallout rate are analyzed. A modified yield model is fitted to the fallout data to estimate the DL.

Af and β are determined by test data analysis.

15
Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality15 Summary n VLSI yield depends on two process parameters, defect density (d ) and clustering parameter (α). n Yield drops as chip area increases; low yield means high cost. n Fault coverage measures the test quality. n Defect level (DL) or reject ratio is a measure of chip quality. n DL can be determined by an analysis of test data. n For high quality: DL < 500 ppm, fault coverage ~ 99%

Problems to Solve 1. Using the expression for defect level on Slide 9, derive test coverage (T) as a function of fault clustering parameter (β), defect level (DL), and average number of faults (Af) on a chip. 2. Find the defect level for: Fault density, f = 1.45 faults/sq. cm Fault clustering parameter, β = 0.11 Chip area = 1 cm 2 Fault Coverage, T = 95% Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality16

17
Solution 1 Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality17 Defect level, DL, is given on Slide 9, as follows: DL = 1 – [(β + Taf)/(β + Af)] β where T is the fault coverage, Af is the average number of faults on a chip of area A, and β is a fault clustering parameter. Further manipulation of this equation leads to the following result: (1 – DL) 1/β = (β + Taf)/(β + Af) or T = [{(β + Af)(1 – DL) 1/β – β}/(Af)] × 100 percent

18
Solution 2 Copyright 2001, Agrawal & BushnellLecture 2 Yield & Quality18 Defect level, DL, as given on Slide 9, is: DL(T) = 1 – [(β + Taf)/(β + Af)] β Substituting, Fault density, f = 1.45 faults/sq. cm Fault clustering parameter, β = 0.11 Chip area = 1 cm 2 Fault Coverage, T = 95% We get, DL(T) = 0.00522 or 5,220 parts per million
