Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
YieldManager® is a customizable yield-management software system that helps integrated circuit (IC) manufacturers achieve and maintain high yields by allowing engineers to collect, correlate, analyze and share critical data. Data types include defect, review, bin sort, bitmap, parametric, MES and final test. YieldManager combines high-level correlations of disparate data sources with the rapid drill-down of data scope to expedite root cause identification, saving engineering time and focusing resources. Utilizing a unified database, YieldManager eliminates the need to maintain multiple client-server applications throughout the fab. This reduces the cost of, and simplifies, the IT infrastructure by providing a single, robust and industry-proven solution for the entire wafer fab.
YieldManager is part of the yield management product portfolio originally developed by Knights Technology. The Knights product line was acquired by Synopsys as part of its acquisition of Magma in 2012.
Effective yield analysis requires powerful management of data from disparate sources and the ability to quickly distinguish probable root causes from symptoms. Such a solution must enable rapid correlation of various data types with meaningful statistics and graphical presentation. YieldManager provides a common data framework that permits consistent analysis methods throughout the fab, empowering multiple teams to collaborate effectively.
