A New Collaborative Approach to Defectivity Challenges in the Automotive Industry

Wednesday, November 13 | 12:35 pm
Smart Transportation Forum | ICM Munich - Room 13b
Presented by Antoine Amade, Senior Regional Director EMEA

By 2030, 50% of the automotive costs are expected to be electronics related with the advent of driver assistance and automation technologies. Reaching new levels of automotive innovation poses a new challenge to the industry-reaching the ppb level in failure rate at the component level.

The solution is in collaboration.

Automobile Reliability

The purity and performance of materials will play a key role in reducing latent defects. Non-visible “black box” contamination, which can be missed by the installed metrology tools, have the potential to negatively impact the reliability of the semiconductor chips later in the life of the automobile. If the industry wants to reach the goal of “zero defects,” a new collaborative approach is necessary.

The semiconductor industry is here in the 3rd generation of the contamination control strategy where baseline and excursion control could be improved with an adequate particle and metal ion management strategy focused on materials. Besides the obvious options of filtration and purification, there is a vast list of potential solutions with the challenge to identify the ones that are the most impactful to yield and defectivity.

Based on benchmark, case studies, technical meetings and process reviews, this approach is practical and cost effective to implement. A collaborative engagement model exists where device makers and material purity experts work together in task force mode to build the capabilities required to enable the reliable electrification, connectivity and automation of transportation ecosystem.

This is the “New Collaborative Approach”.
