Lithography Modeling: Data Augmentation Framework

A new technical paper titled "An Adversarial Active Sampling-based Data Augmentation Framework for Manufacturable Chip Design" was published by researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, Nvidia, and the California Institute of Technology. Abstract: "Lithography modeling is a crucial problem in chip design to ensure a chip design mask is manufacturable. It requires rigorous simulation... » read more

Photoresist Problems Ahead

As the semiconductor industry begins its ramp to manufacturing at 10nm and below, activity is heating up involving lithography modeling. The goal is to be ready when all the pieces of the puzzle are in place. That includes [gettech id="31045" comment="EUV"], when it finally becomes commercially viable, as well as extending ArF [getkc id="80" comment="lithography"]. When it comes to lithogra... » read more
