The company was founded by David Meyer, CEO, and Guglielmo Montone, CTO, and is using advanced AI techniques to use early and sparse data from process monitors to improve yield and minimize chipmaking equipment downtime.
The company’s business model is to provide a software product for fab-owners to operate and benefit from, Meyer said. So far the company has applied deep and transfer learning to etch, CVD and CMP processes, but the objective is to build an end-to-end yield predictor, he added.
Meyer said the approach appeals to chip manufacturers because Lynceus is able to model the relationship between process parameters and test results without requiring any changes in the production line or in testing protocols.
