Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for in-die metrology using target design patterns are provided. These systems and methods include selecting a target design pattern based on design data representing the design of an integrated circuit, providing design data indicative of the target design pattern to enable design data derived from the target design pattern to be added to second design data, wherein the second design data is based on the first design data. Systems and methods can further include causing structures derived from the second design data to be printed on a wafer, inspecting the structures on the wafer using a charged-particle beam tool, and identifying metrology data or process defects based on the inspection. In some embodiments the systems and methods further include causing the charged-particle beam tool, the second design data, a scanner, or photolithography equipment to be adjusted based on the identified metrology data or process defects.

La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de métrologie dans une puce qui utilisent des motifs de conception cibles. Ces systèmes et procédés comprennent la sélection d'un motif de conception cible sur la base de données de conception représentant la conception d'un circuit intégré, la fourniture de données de conception indicatives du motif de conception cible pour permettre à des données de conception dérivées du motif de conception cible d'être ajoutées à des secondes données de conception, les secondes données de conception étant basées sur les premières données de conception. Les systèmes et procédés peuvent en outre consister à amener des structures dérivées des secondes données de conception à être imprimées sur une tranche, à inspecter les structures sur la tranche à l'aide d'un outil à faisceau de particules chargées, et à identifier des données de métrologie ou des défauts de processus sur la base de l'inspection. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les systèmes et procédés comprennent en outre une étape consistant à amener l'outil à faisceau de particules chargées, les secondes données de conception, un dispositif de balayage ou un équipement de photolithographie à être réglé sur la base des données de métrologie ou des défauts de processus identifiés.
