#GLOBALFOUNDRIES selects @Synopsys' Yield Explorer tool for next generation yield management (via @ee_times)

SAN FRANCISCO—Chip foundry Globalfoundries Inc. has selected Synopsys' Yield Explorer tool for use as part of its next-generation yield management system for faster yield ramp based on volume diagnostics, Synopsys said Wednesday (May 30). According to Synopsys (Mountain View, Calif.), Yield Explorer automated volume diagnostics will allow Globalfoundries to quickly identify the dominant systematic failure mechanisms on early test chips as well as customers' chips, reducing the time to achieve desirable yield levels. Yield Explorer's ability to combine and analyze data from design, fab and test domains enables collaboration between Globalfoundries and its customers to identify failure mechanisms and activate process or design corrective actions, Synopsys said. "Understanding and preventing the yield loss caused by design-process interactions is critical to ramp-up of design...
