The Advanced CMOS Essentials (ACE) deliverable for DRAM chips comprises a concise analyst’s summary document highlighting observed critical dimensions and salient features supported by the following image folders:

  • Downstream product teardown
  • Package X-rays, top metal and poly die photographs, non-invasive optical photos of die features
  • SEM bevel through the logic region and DRAM
  • SEM cross section of the general device structure, BEOL (metals, dielectrics) and FEOL structures
  • Two or three TEM cross sections, orthogonal to the word and bit lines, and possibly active directions of DRAM array, showing the DRAM capacitor array , lower metals and dielectrics, transistor gates, isolation, and other FEOL features

  • The results of TEM-EDS analyses are included in the ACE summary document. The ACE deliverable provides timely competitive benchmarking information and enables cost-effective tracking of technical innovation across a breadth of competitors
