1 Matching of Resistors and Capacitors Group Leader Jepsy Asim Bob Sandra Shawn

2 Measuring Mismatch The mismatch between any two devices is expressed as a deviation of the measured device ratio from the intended device ratio. The mismatch between one specific pair of devices can be calculated as: d = (x1/x2)-(x2/x1) = X1x2-1 (X2/X1) X2x1

3 Guidelines for Selecting Samples The sample should include twenty devices or more. The sample should include devices drawn from three wafers or more. The wafers should be selected from various positions in the wafer lot. The sample devices should be selected from random locations on each wafer. The sample should include wafers from more than one wafer lot, if possible. Wafers that have been reworked should not be used for characterization. The sample should be packaged using the same lead frames and encapsulation as production material.

4 Average Mismatch and Standard Deviation Based on computed mismatches, an average mismatch, m, can be derived as: m = 1 i N After the mean has been computed, the standard deviation of the mismatch can be calculated by: 1 N i = 1 N s = ( ( i - m ) ) N-1 i = 1 2 1/2

5 Systematic and Random Mismatch The mean, m, is a measure of the systematic mismatch between the matched devices. The standard deviation, s, is a measure of random mismatch caused by statistical fluctuations in processing conditions or material properties.

6 HISTOGRAM

7 Causes of Mismatch Random Statistical Fluctuations Process Biases Pattern Shifts Diffusion Interactions Stress Gradients and Package Shifts

8 Random Statistical Fluctuations Irregularities are found in every component Polysilicon resistor All devices fall in one of these two categories: Peripheral fluctuations Areal fluctuations

9 Matched Capacitors Random mismatch due to peripheral and areal fluctuations has a standard deviation: Sc = (C)^½ (ka + kp --- )^½ (C)^½ Large Capacitors Areal term dominates and the random mismatch becomes inversely proportional to the square root of capacitance.

10 Matched Capacitors Small Capacitors Dominates matching capacitors of different values. Example: 5pF matches a 50pF capacitor as well as it matches another 5pF capacitor.

11 Matched Resistors The random mismatch between a pair of matched resistors has a standard deviation of: SR = (ka + kp --- )^½ (W)(R)^½ W

12 Widths of Matched Resistors Extreme case where areal fluctuations dominate over peripheral fluctuations: R1 W2 = W1( )^½ Extreme case where peripheral fluctuations dominate over areal fluctuations: --- R2 R1 R2 W2 = W1( --- )^1/3

13 WHAT IS PROCESS BIAS? The dimensions of geometries fabricated in silicon never exactly match those in the layout database because the geometries shrink or expand during photolithography, etching, diffusion and implantation. The difference between the drawn width of a geometry and its actual measured width constitutes the term process bias.

14 PROCESS BIAS Next we study the implementation of such principles with passive devices (such as Resistors & Capacitors).

15 Resistors Polysilicon resistors using a silicide block exhibit high linearity,low capacitance to the substrate, and relatively small mismatches. The linearity of these resistors in fact much depends on their length & width, necessitating accurate measurement and modeling for high precision applications.

16 Resistors Suppose 2 matched poly resistors having widths 2um and 4 um will have a process bias of 0.1um. This represents a systematic mismatch of no less than 2.4 %(0.512um). If one matched resistor s length is of 5um and other is 3um displays a typical mismatch on the order of 0.2%. Approximately most processing biases should be of at least 0.1um. But if the resistors of the above example were laid out in 20um segments then the ratio would be around 0.5um.

17 For large values, resistors are usually decomposed into sorter units that are mapped out in parallel and connected in series. From the viewpoint of matching this layout is preferable, where the corners contribute significant resistance.

18 When very accurate ratios are required (in integer values) this layout can be applied.

19 2 poly poly capacitors, one 10x10um other 10x20um, after etching the bias is of 0.1um. The ratio of the 2 areas equal (almost equal to) mismatch of 0.6%. CAPACITORS They also experience systematic mismatches caused by process bias.(mostly by over etching).

20 CAPACITORS Ideally capacitor size often in analog circuits is given by Solution to the previous mismatch is to keep their parameter to area ratios same even if capacitors are of different sizes.

21 Identically matched capacitors/unit sized are usually laid out as squares because this reduces their area to periphery ratio, which in turn minimizes the contribution of peripheral fluctuation to their random mismatch. Larger capacitors/non unit sized are mapped out as rectangles. Theoretically these equations eliminate systematic mismatches due to process bias but not in practice.

22 CAPACITORS Process Bias experienced by rectangular capacitors are different from square ones. Rectangular capacitors also increase contribution of peripheral fluctuation to random mismatches. There are other effects like process bias leading to mismatches which are caused by boundary conditions of an object, stress, voltage modulation, dielectric polarization & pattern shifts.

23 What is a pattern shifts? This is another error in matching mechanism due to surface discontinuities on substrates that are frequently displaced laterally during an epitaxial growth.

24 PATTERN SHIFTS Surface discontinuities left from the thermal annealing of the N-buried layer(nbl) propagate up through the monocrystalline silicone layer deposited during vapor-phase epitaxy. This discontinuous image is called an NBL shadow.

25 Sometimes various edges of discontinuity shift by different amounts causing pattern distortion. Occasionally the surface discontinuities completely vanish during the course of epitaxy resulting in pattern washout.

26 Factors effecting shifts Magnitude of patterns depend on the mobility of absorbed reactants and crystal orientation. Also high pressure, faster growth rate, presence of chlorine increase pattern shifts. While high temperature tends to reduce pattern shifts.

27 PATTERN SHIFTS The NBL shadow is clear in the vicinity of minimum geometry NPN transistors. It appears as a faint dark line. Once the shadow is identified, the NBL shift can be estimated by dimensions of contact or narrow resistors. Pattern shifts becomes potential concern whenever matched devices are laid out in a process that employs a patterned buried layer(such as NBL). Not all components are reflected by pattern shifts like capacitors & poly resistors. But diffused resistors are usually enclosed in tanks or wells containing NBL.

28 PATTERN SHIFTS

29 Diffusion Interactions Dopants that form a diffusion do not all reside within the boundaries of its junction. Metallurgical junction where acceptor concentration = donor concentration. Tail portion of the junction that falls outside of the metallurgical junction.

30 Diffusion Interactions Tails of two adjacent diffusions will intersect with one another. Different polarity Counterdope Higher sheet resistances Narrower widths Same polarity Diffusions add Reinforce each other Lower sheet resistances Greater widths

31 Diffusion Interactions To reduce mismatch, we add dummy resistors to either end of the array. Must have exactly same width as the other resistors. Should be connected to prevent the formation of floating diffusions.

32 Diffusion Interactions We can eliminate diffusion interactions without increasing the die area.

33 Stress Gradients and Package Shifts Piezoresistivity Gradients and Centroids Common-Centroid Layout Location and Orientation

34 Stress Gradients and Package Shifts Different forms of packing affect the amount of stress. Packaging for semiconductors Metal header Plastic

35 Stress Gradients and Package Shifts Package shifts differences in measurements of electrical parameters before and after packaging. Power packaging requires an intimate thermal union between the die and its leadframe or its header to minimize heat build up.

36 Stress Gradients and Package Shifts Low stress mold compounds do not reduce package stress significantly. A better method involves coating each chip with polyimide resin prior to encapsulation. Most products use plastic encapsulation with copper alloy headers or leadframes.

37 Piezoresistivity

38 Isobaric contour plot Gradients and Centroids

39 Gradients and Centroids Stress Gradient the rate of change of the stress intensity. Smallest at the middle and slowly increases as it reaches the edges.

40 Gradients and Centroids Matched devices should be as close as possible to one another to reduce stress between them. Assumption: stress gradient is constant in region. Stress difference is proportional to the product of the stress gradient and the separation between them.

41 Gradients and Centroids s = cc d cc dels cc cc = piezoresistivity along a line connecting the centroids of the two matched device. d cc = distance between the centroids dels cc = stress gradient

44 Location and Orientation Matched device should be where the stress gradients are the lowest. Best location for matched devices are at the middle of the die. Larger dice have more stress than smaller ones.
