Advanced ICs

AI, 5G, cloud and edge computing, autonomous vehicles, mobile devices. Today’s electronics and tomorrow’s technologies require leading-edge GPUs, CPUs, DRAM and 3D NAND chips. These ICs are fabricated using intricate shapes and new materials, with structures that are smaller, narrower, taller and deeper. This complexity demands control of patterning anomalies to ensure manufacturing success.

Archer™ 750

Our new imaging-based overlay metrology system provides accurate, fast measurement of overlay error, helping lithographers identify inline excursions and improve patterning performance.

  • Unique wavelength tunability with 10nm resolution delivers accurate and robust overlay error measurements in the presence of process variation for fast technology ramps and stable production of advanced logic and memory devices
  • New CPL (color per layer) measurement mode enhances target signal-to-noise for accurate overlay measurements on challenging lithography stacks, EUV thin resists and opaque films
  • Hardware advancements, including a new stage and sensor, boost system productivity to levels typically only seen with scatterometry-based overlay systems for increased overlay sampling that supports high order scanner corrections and high volume manufacturing
  • Advanced new algorithms with novel rAIM® overlay target design provide improved device to target correlation and better process robustness for improved tracking of device overlay performance
