<p>The cost and cycle time for determining the root cause of yield loss continues to increase as semiconductor technology scales down. A new technique, Axiom, helps yield and product engineers determine the root cause of loss directly from diagnosis results. Consequently, root-cause cycle time is dramatically reduced, resulting in a higher physical-failure analysis success rate and reduced costs.</p>
