Tower Semiconductor Ltd has selected KLA-Tencor Corp.'s yield-analysis software to be installed at its Fab 2 plant in Migdal Haemek, Israel. The KLA-Tencor Klarity ACE fab-wide software is expected to help accelerate the ramp-up of Tower's 0.18?m aluminum and 0.13?m copper CMOS process technology.

By integrating Klarity ACE into its fab network, Tower will be able to monitor yields on its customers' products throughout the IC fabrication process, and more easily share performance and reliability data with its customers. This is expected to enable process issues to be identified and resolved quickly.

"With this integrated fab-wide solution, our customers can improve the implementation of their xcursion control methodologies and advanced systematic limited yield modeling - both of which are essential to accelerating their yield learning and improving production success on their advanced IC designs," stated Dr. Ellis Chang, VP of marketing for KLA-Tencor's defect and yield solutions division.
