Taiwan Semiconductor Mfg Co. Ltd (TSMC) and PDF Solutions Inc. have collaborated in which the latter will provide its PDF technology for TSMC's 90nm Yield Learning Infrastructure project. The joint project is targeted to be completed in Q4 of this year and is initially being deployed in TSMC's 300mm Fab 12.

This TSMC project hopes to continue the industry's adoption of PDF's technologies and services at the 90nm node, and broaden PDF's customer base.

"With the design and process complexity that we are facing, we believe PDF's technology is very useful in gaining more visibility into product-specific yield issues," said S. Y. Chiang, SVP of R&D for TSMC. "With PDF's proven approach to supplement our own methodologies, we can provide our customers the benefit of a fully characterized process across a broad set of layout features before reaching production phase."
