Testing of Digital Systems

Machine checking out represents the one greatest production cost within the semiconductor undefined, costing over $40 billion a 12 months. the main accomplished and huge ranging publication of its style, trying out of electronic structures covers every thing you want to find out about this extremely important topic. beginning correct from the fundamentals, the authors take the reader via each key zone, together with specific therapy of the newest strategies corresponding to system-on-a-chip and IDDQ checking out.

Microelectronics, Microsystems, and Nanotechnology: papers presented at MMN 2000, Athens, Greece, 20-22 November, 2000

This quantity comprises papers at the following: CMOS units and units in line with compound semiconductors; processing; silicon built-in know-how and built-in circuit layout; quantum physics; nanotechnology; nanodevices, sensors and microsystems. modern information and destiny demanding situations in those fields are awarded in invited papers.


Curiosity in latchup is being renewed with the evolution of complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) know-how, metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) scaling, and high-level system-on-chip (SOC) integration. transparent methodologies that furnish defense from latchup, with perception into the physics, expertise and circuit concerns concerned, are in expanding call for.

III–V Compound Semiconductors: Integration with Silicon-Based Microelectronics

Silicon-based microelectronics has gradually better in a variety of performance-to-cost metrics. yet after a long time of processor scaling, basic barriers and significant new demanding situations have emerged. the combination of compound semiconductors is the major candidate to deal with a lot of those matters and to proceed the relentless pursuit of extra robust, low-cost processors.

Concentration can be expressed in different ways. In the microelectronics industry, number concentration is the method most frequently used: Number concentration can be expressed in different units, such as particles per cubic foot or particles per cubic meter or per cubic centimeter. Clearly, the numerical value of number concentration will vary with the units used, as 1 particle/cm3 = 28,317 particles/ft3. Particle concentration can also be expressed on a mass basis: Again, the value of mass concentration will vary with the units used.

Particle diameter, from Equation (28). Page 17 Gravity Force Gravity, among all forces that can act on aerosol particles, is especially important because it acts on all particles all the time. It is the product of particle mass (volume times density) multiplied by the acceleration of gravity: where (rp - rf) is the difference between particle density, rp, and the density of the fluid through which it moves, rf. The terminal velocity with which a particle falls by gravity, vt, can be determined by setting the drag force from Equation (25) equal to the force of gravity from Equation (210).

First is a review of the various ways that particles can cause yield loss on integrated circuits. In particular, there are several ways that particles can cause damage that have only recently been recognized as important by particle control technologists. By some of these mechanisms, the circuit may be damaged by particles so small that they were previously thought to be of little concern. Particle-integrated circuit interactions will then be reviewed quantitatively. Basic information on yield models will be presented, along with the effect of nonuniform distributions of defects on the yield model.
