Improving Manufacturability -- From Design through Mask Generation
Moderator:
Srinkanth Venkataraman - Intel Corp.
Assuring manufacturability of present and future technologies and designs is crucial, and multiple methods are needed to achieve this. First, designs must better comprehend process constraints. The first paper effectively factors in implant-area constraints in multi-Vt designs, during mixed-cell-height place and route. Second, potential layout hotspots must be efficiently identified in a candidate design. The second paper achieves cluster count reduction during layout pattern classification using proposed heuristics. Third, manufacturable multi-patterned masks must be generated, and the third paper proposes a novel framework to simultaneously optimize layout decomposition and mask corrections. Finally, future technologies and designs will require joint multi-objective consideration of alternatives, as presented in the last paper.
