Reliability Engineering and Kinetics of Degradation Processes in Advanced Electronics

Modul description:

For micro- and nanoelectronic products, functionality, performance and reliability depend on design, applied technology and used materials. The reliability of the product is limited by the kinetics of degradation processes of the materials and device. The understanding of the fundamentals of reliability physics and engineering is crucial for the design and the manufacturing of reliable, high-performance, and cost-effective products, including the selection of proper process steps (technology) and of the materials used.

The goal of the lecture is to teach the methodology of reliability physics and engineering and its practical impact on quality engineering in semiconductor industry. Reliability-limiting effects in transistors, on-chip interconnect stacks, and advanced packaging including 3D IC integration will be discussed in particular. Another focus of this lecture is the role of reliability for product lifetime and specific future challenges. In addition, the kinetics of degradation processes and failure mechanisms will be elaborated based on experimental results and complementary modeling and simulation. The need of multi-scale modeling and multi-scale materials data for FE analysis will be demonstrated. The lecture will show the close interaction between device design, technology, materials as well as the need of physical analysis techniques.
