Advanced Interconnects: Design, Process, And Integration

Synopsis
A video recording of a short course held by the International Electron Devices Meeting (IDEM) in 2000. As technologies scale to the 0.13 ?m generation and below, interconnect performance is an increasingly large factor to consider in high-performance and low-power chip designs. To improve interconnect performance at the same pace as transistor performance, revolutionary changes in the material systems are required. However, there are significant challenges associated with the introduction of new materials into a manufacturing environment. This course describes the materials, process, manufacturing, and design trends in interconnect technology with a focus on copper and low-K interconnect systems. The first lecture covers interconnect trends and chip design issues and how they influence the selection of the interconnect architecture. The second lecture presents an overview of the materials and process issues for copper and low-K materials focusing on the evolution of the materials systems over time. The third lecture describes unique integration issues surrounding copper and low-K. The fourth lecture discusses the manufacturing issues including defect monitoring and parameter control at the sector level. Finally, interconnect reliability issues are covered, contrasting the failure modes in Aluminum to Copper.
