This seminar is focused on examining the benefits and tradeoffs associated with parallel test solutions for wafer level reliability (WLR.) WLR tests are commonly used throughout the semiconductor lifecycle from technology development and process integration to process reliability monitoring. The speed and accuracy of the WLR testing impact time to market for new designs. Parallel WLR testing provides a tool to significantly accelerate throughput by providing statistically significant samples sooner. Parallel WLR test solutions provide throughput benefits for both traditional and advanced WLR measurements.
By participating in this seminar, you will learn and understand:
How to estimate the speed and throughput impact of parallel WLR testing on traditional reliability structures
How to assess traditional test structures for use in a parallel test system
The source of measurement errors that impact WLR measurements
Typical configuration, measurement, and optimization techniques
This seminar is recommended for engineers who are new to semiconductor reliability testing, test engineers who need to accelerate WLR testing, and QRA lab managers.
