ABSTRACT
At its core, yield has a simple definition: the fraction of total chips that are good. Yield learning is not about increasing yield for its own sake. Yield learning is about reducing the cost of a good chip. This benefits everyone involved: the company that builds the wafers, the one that sells the chips, and eventually the end user of whatever product the chip goes into. Yield learning is what keeps Moore's law going.
