White Paper: Color Optimization Considerations in Multi-Patterning
Decomposing multi-patterned design layers into colors has traditionally been an exercise in finding at least one DRC legal coloring solution. But not all coloring solutions are created equal. In fact, when choosing a coloring solution a number of critical decisions have to be made.
What type of considerations have to be accounted for? Here are just a few:
The effects of density variation in color assignments on process robustness, the benefits of keeping color regularity within design circuits with repetitive structures like memories and improvements in hotspot issues by using DFM-aware coloring.
Before you undertake a change in your multi-pattern coloring solution, read this white paper, in which you will learn:
The importance of color density balancing.
Why color regularity is important.
The significance of DFM-Aware coloring and how it can improve your designs performance.
