Product Photomasks Data Preparation
Title Photomasks Data Preparation
Product Type open and distance learning
Marketing Text A training for understanding the purpose of the mask data preparation steps for the mask making process.
Description Despite the fact that all nowadays microchips use photomasks for their fabrication, it appears that no course is available worldwide on this topic. The only available training are provided internally in companies dealing with this activity and without any formal teaching. This leads to dramatic discrepancies in the wording used by the professionals as well as an important weakness regarding efficiency and homogeneity of the procedures. It is then important to correct this lack by providing an up to date course on this topic, especially when knowing that masks cost represents today at least 10% of the full development cost of a chip.
Target group Technicians or engineers already working in microelectronics and expecting to extend their skills
Result being able to monitor and schedule the whole mask data preparation flow.
Area of application Dealing with the different technical constraints of all the steps and tools needed in the mask data preparation flow with concern on cost and time.
