Job description

As essential components of safety-relevant equipment in vehicles, machines, etc., semiconductors are subject to very high quality requirements. At the end of the semiconductor frontend production, measurements (electrical wafer test data) for each chip are performed, which are visualized as so-called wafermaps. These wafermaps contain patterns which need to be detected. Such a pattern recognition technique (i.e. an ML pipeline) has already been developed, but due to the ever-increasing number of existing pattern types for hundreds of different products, classical approaches reach their limits. Therefore, DL techniques like CNNs in combination with suitable data augmentation techniques will be evaluated regarding their applicability.

In this master thesis you will:

  • Understanding of the problem and related data sources through the exchange with experts
  • Literature study on suitable d ata augmentation techniques
  • Neural network architectures (characteristics, applications, possibilities, ...)
  • Investigation and implementation of most promising methods
  • Integration of the methods into existing analysis pipeline
  • Documentation of the results and preparation of a master thesis
