Blowing of polycrystalline silicon fuses
Lee, William T.; Fowler, Andrew C.; Power, O.; Healy, S.; Browne, J.
Polycrystalline silicon fuses are one time programmable memory elements which allow the calibration of integrated circuits at wafer and package level. We present a zero-dimensional lumped parameter model of the programming of fuses made from a combination of tungsten silicide and polycrystalline silicon. The components of the model are an electrical model, a thermal model, and a flow model. The model generates quantitatively accurate results and reproduces trends with applied voltage and fuse size.
