SandBox Semiconductor Presents at SPIE Conference: Predicting and optimizing etch recipes for across the wafer uniformity
March 20, 2019
The identification of a recipe for a specific etch process is time consuming and expensive, requiring extensive experiments and metrology. Here we present two modules in SandBox StudioTM, SB-Bayesian and SBNeuralNet, to accelerate the prediction and optimization of etch recipes for across the wafer uniformity.
