Data mining techniques for Semiconductor Manufacturing

  • Partners: Laboratoired’InformatiqueFondamentale of AMU (Aix-Marseille University)
  • Contact: Christian Ernst
  • Description: We introduce data mining techniques into semiconductor manufacturing fabs like STMicroelectonics in Rousset. The objective is to improve the yield management by discovering correlations between measured parameters within the manufacturing chain. We focus on post hoc APC (Advanced Process Control) approaches, which compare the end result of the whole process with the desired specifications, analyzing the root causes of low yield for adjusting the process parameters to ensure future quality. We developed a complete KDD model: we simplified the measured data by adapted preprocessing and transformation tools and extracted two kinds of Decisional Correlation Rules which enhance conventional association rules. We currently parallelize these approaches in order to secure the work and explore other ways to improve it.
