Manufacturing Yield Optimization
Increasing the yield rate for the manufacturing of microchips by reducing the number of false positives and false negative alerts
Due to the very complex process and inherent fluctuations associated with manufacturing microchips, semiconductor companies are continually trying to improve their yield rate to reduce costs and increase profit margins. One of the main contributing factors is the high rate of false positives and negatives. Semiconductor companies can use edge intelligence to quickly identify false positives and false negatives in real-time, before they leave the manufacturing facility.
In the semiconductor industry, often because of IP- and security-related concerns, data generated by the fabrication process is not permitted to be moved to cloud-based systems. An edge solution can satisfy such a requirement by applying analytics close to the source of the data without a need to move the data to the cloud.
