Yields Dynamics says AMD has placed a multi-million dollar order for YDI's Genesis yield management software for use in AMD's new Fab 36 in Dresden, Germany.

Fab 36 is AMD’s new 300mm fab and will manufacture its leading-edge microprocessors. Fab 36 will use the third generation of AMD’s extensive patented suite of advanced fab technologies, known collectively as Automated Precision Manufacturing (APM). Genesis will act as a seamlessly integrated component within the APM framework, working in concert with APM’s numerous proprietary yield management systems.

Genesis has been used in AMD fabs worldwide for the past five years.

“APM’s unprecedented levels of automated decision-making enable us to stay at the forefront of manufacturing speed, accuracy and agility. The flexibility of the Genesis solution strongly complements these capabilities,” stated Charles Clark, Director of Global Manufacturing Services for AMD.
