ESR1.1 Test and Reliability of FinFET memories

Analysing both the aspect of quality and reliability of FinFET memories (e.g. at the 14nm technology node). Unique defects mechanism will be identified, including the Fin related, litho related, etc., as well as the impact of scaling, such as cell capacitance, intrinsic delays, etc. Fault models as well as appropriate test and design-for-testability schemes will be developed. In addition to that, quantification of reliability characteristics of the failure mechanisms and their impact on all parts of a memory system will be covered and appropriate mitigation schemes will be developed.

This activity targets realisation of reliability assesmnet of FinFET memories, fault models and test methods.
