    Abstract

    An overview is presented of the techniques available for characterizing process nonuniformities on large-diameter wafers. Examples are given of the use of two-dimensional and three-dimensional mapping techniques for displaying within-wafer variability, and of relative and cumulative frequency plots for representing process tolerances. Two new display methods are recommended for dealing with small data sets: minicontour maps and folded-axis cumulative frequency plots.
