Using in-line defect data, critical area analysis of cell layout, and a rule-based algorithm to associate critical areas with electrical faults, we can predict failing bitmap signatures and their frequencies for any memory circuit. The technique is demonstrated using a 0.25 μm SRAM technology. Results can be used for test optimization, redundancy planning, yield prediction, and determining process steps responsible for yield loss
