Modeling of electromigration phenomena

F. Cacho and X. Federspiel,     STMicroelectronics, France

Abstract:

From early Black’s law to modern technology computer-aided design (TCAD) solutions, this chapter highlights the different strategies of electromigration modeling. Firstly, vacancy transport equations are discussed and applications to interconnect failure mode are described. Then, the simulation of void shape evolution during electromigration is presented and various numerical methods are compared and illustrated.
