Enabling smart manufacturing in semiconductor fabs using predictive design and process insights

As the semiconductor market continues rapid growth, every part of the design and manufacturing of semiconductor products needs to adopt smarter processes to meet the demand. Designers need to accelerate development, manufacturers needs to ramp yield quickly and maximize the efficiency of the fab, and all parts of the supply chain need to be in sync. For the semiconductor fab, this means implementing a digital twin to reduce iterations between design and production, virtually prototype and develop new processes, and quickly characterize and calibrate every piece of equipment in the fab.

Siemens, a leader in digital twin technology, offers the Calibre Fab Insights platform to help semiconductor manufacturers meet their business and sustainability goals today and into the future.

Using a digital twin with Calibre Fab Insights provides unique business value: new products start production sooner, yield ramp is faster and yield entitlement is higher.

Slide showing smart manufacturing using the Digital Twin approach: the goal

Design-aware product-specific feature extraction

Calibre Fab Insights enables design layout-aware feature extraction using Calibre's core machine-learning platform capabilities. Combined with process and equipment information, it lets engineers embed domain knowledge in feature selection and modeling for more accurate and informed decision-making.

Robust and intelligent

Virtual metrology with real-time monitoring

Calibre Fab Insights offers smart manufacturing solutions that monitor the real-time health of machines and provide adjustments to optimize process flows. By forecasting process drifts and identifying root cause failures, Calibre Fab Insights helps mitigate risk in manufacturing and enables customers to achieve high quality and yield of wafers.

Smart and fast optimization

Artificial intelligence guided recipe setup

Calibre Fab Insights provides a ranking of input parameters that have the most significant impact on the target measurement, such as yield and reliability, for the entire wafer process or process level. This enables Calibre Fab Insights to recommend process recipe settings for a new product or to optimize settings for an existing product's fab recipe

Usability and productivity

Web-browser based analytics dashboard

Calibre Fab Insights provides a user-friendly GUI interface for machine learning-based data analysis and process optimization. The GUI dashboard lets engineers detect reliability issues quickly and reduce turnaround time, leading to faster and more accurate decision-making.
