CVD

CVD processes are used for a broad spectrum of applications. These range from patterning films to insulation materials in transistor structures and between the layers of conducting metal that form the electrical circuit. Applications include shallow-trench isolation, pre-metal dielectric, inter-metal dielectric, and passivation. They are also important in strain engineering that uses compressive or tensile stress films to enhance transistor performance through improved conductivity.
