Abstract
A vision shared by OEMs and Tier-1s is that next generation of cars will be more and more electric, autonomous and connected. To achieve these goals, automotive players will have to work on the electrification of vehicles that can be hybrid or 100% electric. They will also have to develop and integrate sensors like radars, cameras and LiDARs to increase the level of autonomy. Cars will be increasingly connected meaning that more and more software and AI will be needed as well as technology to connect cars to their environment.Stricter emission regulations, lower battery costs, and increasing consumer acceptance will create new and strong momentum for penetration of electrified vehicles in the coming years. The speed of adoption will be determined by the interaction of consumer pull and regulatory push, which will vary strongly at the regional and local level.The autonomous trend is pushed by the development of sensors to monitor the surroundings of the vehicle. To do that, sensors are continuously developed to increase resolution, frame rate and dynamic range for cameras. Radar manufacturers have also released products from short-range to long-range detection and new entrants are working on 4D radars to increase the level of resolution. Finally, the interest into LiDAR sensors is continuously increasing with different technologies being pushed by manufacturers.Finally all these sensors will need higher level of computation as the amount of data generated will boom in the next years. Therefore, the artificial intelligence is slowly but surely invading the automotive ecosystem through autonomous cars and infotainment applications/systems. On the connectivity side, V2X, pushed by the development of 4G/5G-based cellular communication, provides direct communication from the car to other vehicles and infrastructure, and does not involve network operators in the process.

Abstract
Semiconductor fabs have historically used inspection and metrology equipment for yield learning – to monitor individual process tools for excursions and to assure that their manufacturing processes stay in control to maximize productivity. The increasing semiconductor content in automobiles, driven by growth in ADAS, electrification and autonomy, has put a growing focus on the quality and reliability of these devices and their implications for consumer safety and satisfaction.This push for better reliability is embodied in the industry’s Zero Defect initiative, as car manufacturers drive semiconductor DPPM requirements for their chip suppliers below 1PPM. More than half of the semiconductor failures that occur on the automotive assembly line today (so-called 0km failures) have their origin in semiconductor fab defectivity. To successfully meet their customers’ reliability goals, fabs across the full range of design rules and device types are looking at their inspection and metrology data in a fresh light. Not only are they using their process control tools to do a better job of reducing overall sources of defectivity, they are also looking to the data to help disposition individual die, removing high-risk defective die from the supply chain.In this keynote, KLA will update some of these industry trends and some of the exciting steps forward in quality and reliability made possible by these novel methods.

Abstract
By 2030, 50% of the automotive costs are expected to be electronics related with the advent of driver assistance and automation technologies. Reaching new levels of automotive innovation poses a new challenge to the industry -reaching the ppb level in failure rate at the component level.The solution is in collaboration.The purity and performance of materials will play a key role in reducing latent defects. Non-visible “black box” contamination, which can be missed by the installed metrology tools, have the potential to negatively impact the reliability of the semiconductor chips later in the life of the automobile. If the industry wants to reach the goal of “zero defects,” a new collaborative approach is necessary.The semiconductor industry is here in the 3rd generation of the contamination control strategy where baseline and excursion control could be improved with an adequate particle and metal ion management strategy focused on materials. Besides the obvious options of filtration and purification, there is a vast list of potential solutions with the challenge to identify the ones that are the most impactful to yield and defectivity. Based on benchmark, case studies, technical meetings and process reviews, this approach is practical and cost effective to implement. A collaborative engagement model exists where device makers and material purity experts work together in task force mode to build the capabilities required to enable the reliable electrification, connectivity and automation of transportation ecosystem. This is the “New Collaborative Approach”.
