Thesis- Development of an automatic measurement system for the execution of Reliability Tests on semiconductor devices

  • Facility: Avezzano (Italy)
  • Job time: Thesis

The wafer level reliability (WLR) laboratory performs accelerated reliability tests of semiconductor devices as part of the technological qualification of a product. Furthermore, the laboratory performs periodical tests as monitor of the production line to reduce the probability that deviant material arrives to the final customer.
There are three main portions of the technology process that are evaluated by WLR tests:
1. Device reliability is assessed by Hot Carrier Injection (HCI) and Bias Temperature Instability (BTI) tests
2. Gate Oxide Integrity is assessed by Time Dependent Dielectric Breakdown (TDDB) and Voltage ramp (V-ramp) tests
3. Metal Interconnects are assessed by Electromigration (EM), Stress Migration (SM), and Inter Layer Dielectric (ILD) TDDB
The execution of accelerated reliability testing requires a large amount of electrical measurements to monitor over time the characteristics of the various devices under stress. For this purpose are used machines and tools (Prober and Testers) that allows to perform electrical measurements automatically.

STAGE - Chemical Laboratory

Study on analytical recovery capability for metal elements from silicon wafer surface by VPD/ICP-MS
Optical performances of CMOS imagers can be affected by contamination caused by several elements found, even if in extremely low concentration, in semiconductor production environment. In particular, contamination by noble elements like, for example, Gold or Silver, is extremely critical since these elements have a very low migration rate in the silicon, so they are not easily segregated into the gettering sites. They remain electrically active, and contribute to the so called “hot pixel” defects. Unfortunately, the noble elements are also very difficult to be effectively detected by VPD/ICP-MS, the technique traditionally and successfully used to detect most of the other elements (like Fe, Cr, Ni, Na, Ca...). In fact, the chemical mixtures typically used to dissolve noble metals (like Aqua Regia) are very aggressive to the silicon substrate as well, damaging the wafer surface and making recovery by the automated equipment used for this technique (VPD) very difficult and not reliable. In order to allow the implementation of routine analysis for the full elemental range of interest, alternative chemistries should be defined (through theoretical modeling and analytical test confirmation), capable to assure acceptable analytical recovery for noble elements and the other common elements at same time.

STAGE - Chemical Laboratory

  • Facility: Avezzano (Italy)
  • Job time: Stage

Characterization of VOC contamination in fab c/r environment, and subsequent set-up of a monitoring methodology and strategy
VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) may affect semiconductor production yield by defect generation (e.g. in ECP process) or damaging the lens coating of photolithography production equipment. VOC concentration and composition in the fab c/r environment depends on internal and external sources, which may change for seasonal reasons as well. A characterization of the contamination is necessary to establish the most effective methodology and strategy for VOC monitoring.
