Our goal on the manufacturing phase is to increase yield and optimize production costalong the lifecycle of the product. During production we continuously track variations in manufactured products quality by tuning optionsthat are critical to yield. If a process change is detected, we communicate with the foundry to resolve the issue.
To further reduce production cost we help customers to introduce onwafer testing stage. Onwafer testing can detect dies with failures, that appear due to manufacturing process imperfectness, and helps to classify usable dies on early stage, according to their performance and functionality. After accumulating production statistical data, we can reducetest time by excluding tests which tend to find no failures, and further reduce production cost.
