INTRODUCTION
What Is Yield Management? Reaching a sufficiently high yield is a principal business objective for any semiconductor manufacturer. As yield may be influenced by each processing step as well as the interactions between these steps, it is necessary for the processing units like lithography, etching, and deposition, which are engaged in achieving high yields within their area of influence, to work in conjunction with a designated yield department. The yield department typically coordinates activities within the entire organization in order to achieve better yield results. In this chapter, we discuss the fact that yield may be affected by both defects and process variability. Depending…
