  • Publication number: 20210224549
    Abstract: A system can obtain a labelled data set, including historic video data and labelled events. The system can divide the labelled data set into historic training/testing data sets. The system can determine, using the historic training data set, a plurality of different parameter configurations to be used by a video encoder to encode a video that includes a plurality of video frames. Each parameter configuration can include a group of pictures (“GOP”) size and a scenecut threshold. The system can calculate an accuracy of event detection (“ACC”) and a filtering rate (“FR”) for each parameter configuration. The system can calculate, for each parameter configuration of the plurality of different parameter configurations, a harmonic mean between the ACC and the FR. The system can then select a best parameter configuration of the plurality of different parameter configurations based upon the parameter configuration that has the highest harmonic mean.

  • Publication number: 20210132502
    Abstract: Techniques for lithography process delay characterization and effective dose compensation are provided. In one aspect, a method of analyzing a lithography process includes: applying a photoresist to a wafer; performing a post-apply bake of the photoresist; patterning the photoresist with sequences of open frame base line exposures performed at doses of from about 92% E0 to about 98% E0, and ranges therebetween, at multiple fields of the wafer separated by intervening programmed delay intervals, wherein E0 is the photoresist dose-to-clear; performing a post-exposure bake of the photoresist; developing the photoresist; performing a full wafer inspection to generate a grayscale map of the wafer; and analyzing the grayscale map to determine whether the intervening programmed delay intervals had an effect on the open frame base line exposures during the lithography process. Exposure dose compensation can then be applied to maintain a constant effective dose.
