How Will The Adoption Of Curvilinear Masks Affect Turnaround Time?


Turnaround time (TAT) for photomask makers has historically increased at smaller and smaller process nodes, as reported in the eBeam Initiative Mask Makers surveys, so it’s important to look at the impact of curvilinear masks on TAT. In this sixth installment of our blog series on curvilinear masks, Aki Fujimura of D2S explores this question with luminaries in the industry during a video pane... » read more

Bending The Rules With Curvilinear Technology


What have been the historical hurdles for curvilinear ILT? Danping Peng, director at TSMC, reflected on his early involvement in the development of ILT and the three major hurdles encountered while at Luminescent during a panel discussion with industry experts at the eBeam Initiative’s annual event during the 2021 SPIE Advanced Lithography Conference. Among the topics covered, the panel di... » read more

Enabling Curvilinear Masks


This talk by Leo Pang, Chief Product Officer of D2S, takes a look at a unique GPU-accelerated approach to curvilinear inverse lithography technology (ILT) and introduces mask-wafer co-optimization (MWCO) that enables writing curvilinear ILT for 193i on VSB or multi-beam machines in 12 hours. » read more
