L-shape based layout fracturing for e-beam lithography

Bei Yu, Jhih-Rong Gao, D. Z. Pan
2013 2013 18th Asia and South Pacific Design Automation Conference (ASP-DAC)  
Layout fracturing is a fundamental step in mask data preparation and e-beam lithography (EBL) writing.  ...  To increase EBL throughput, recently a new L-shape writing strategy is proposed, which calls for new L-shape fracturing, versus the conventional rectangular fracturing.  ...  Conclusions In this paper we have proposed two novel algorithms for EBL with the new L-shape based layout fracturing for shot number and sliver minimization.  ...
