ABSTRACT
Optimized test structures are necessary to measure and analyze the causes for systematic yield loss. This article introduces a novel test structure for BEOL—an infrastructure IP for process monitoring. It also describes a method for characterizing and measuring yield ramp issues and solutions for improving silicon debug and DFM.
