One common challenge for Analog Wafer Fabs is the large variety of technologies, processes and products. Due to the long lifetime of analog products the product-mix and therefore the complexity of manufacturing processes typically increases over the years. This high complexity leads, together with usually mature toolsets, to a growing risk of misprocessing due to equipment weakness or failure. Based on these challenges and in light of increasing automation of production processes, we have developed a novel automatic hardware qualification scheme for crucial hardware functionalities.Our method allows to test and qualify vacuum integrity, plasma and gas flow parameters without any human interaction. It can either be run alongside regular process qualifications or while the tool and chambers are idle to assure maximum tool availability. The universal setup allows the implementation on fundamentally different toolsets like dielectric deposition or metal etch without any modification of the underlying routine. The high data density and coverage of this monitoring scheme facilitates root-cause analysis and the vast number of available small signals enables proactive reaction to upcoming failures.In this presentation, the implementation and data collection as well as the impact on the manufacturing and tool stability will be presented and discussed.
