With Mesa's Video Help Library, anyone can learn to perform
physics-based CMP simulation.

This sample demonstrates the main features of the plotting window:

Using Mesa's physically-based model
of CMP, your staff can see and explore

  • The physics of pad-wafer interaction
  • How and when materials are cleared
  • How 3D patterns affect polish performance
  • Effects of multiple slurries, different pad properties, process variations, and much more

Nothing can replace actually watching the important CMP mechanisms at work. And only Mesa provides this information in an easy-to-use environment. Using Mesa yields insight that is difficult to gain any other way. Anyone involved in CMP can benefit from using it.

Mesa has been successfully validated on

  • Oxide,
  • Copper, and
  • STI processes.
