White Paper: Introduction to Multi-patterning

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Moore’s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Fortunately, software developers have created tools that can play certain tricks on these images, to create reasonable-quality images with existing hardware.

Multi-patterning is a new approach that enables accurate lithographic resolution at today's most advanced nodes. In this five-page white paper, you will learn:

  • Why advanced process nodes need multi-patterning
  • The role multi-patterning plays, compared to advanced lithographic systems
  • What different types of multi-patterning the industry can expect to see
