Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg Co. Ltd (TSMC) and NPTest Inc., have launched a design diagnostic service for devices fabricated on TSMC's Nexsys 90nm process. The two companies combined their resources and expertise to define the validation procedure by analyzing and characterizing silicon design performance through in-circuit timing measurements on TSMC 90nm sample devices.

NPTest, the first member of TSMC's IC Validation Alliance, used advanced optical measurement tools to perform and analyze critical timing measurements. By characterizing 90nm samples, the optimal range of important parameters, including sample preparation, device stimulus, and minimum geometry measurements, was determined.
