Abstract

This paper details and compares the technology options for post–processing foundry produced CMOS at chip-scale to enable More than Moore functionality. In many cases there are attractions in using chip-based processing through the Multi-Project Wafer route that is frequently employed in research, early-stage development and low-volume production. This paper identifies that spray-based photoresist deposition combined with optical maskless lithography demonstrates sufficient performance combined with low cost and operational convenience to offer an attractive alternative to conventional optical lithography, where spin-coated photoresist is exposed through a patterned photomask.
