The Joint Institute for Informatics Problems offers consumers a software package for image processing and analysis for technical vision systems in the microelectronic industry (SP IPA) under a license agreement.
The Joint Institute for Informatics Problems of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has developed a software package that provides preliminary processing, analysis and control of object parameters on images of topological layers of integrated circuits.

The main functions of the complex:
* input of design information into computer-aided design systems VLSI;
* operational collection of objective information about the quality of the performance of a particular technological operation;
* Obtaining the information necessary for express analysis of products of competing enterprises.

The SP IPA performs the following main operations:
* obtaining a complete image of the topology layer from fragments (frames) and providing subsequent interactive viewing of the entire image with the possibility of scaling it using a specialized editor, which is carried out using the developed software;
* pre-processing of images, spectral histogram analysis;
* segmentation and identification in the image at the direction of the operator of areas of a certain type with the possibility of their subsequent adjustment, automated preparation of a library of areas to be identified, identification of areas (combinations of areas) with the possibility of subsequent viewing and adjustment, approximation of the boundaries of the selected areas by straight line segments, the formation of processing scenarios.

The SP IPA operates in interactive mode under the control of the Windows or Linux RedHat operating system.

The SP IPA allows to significantly increase the productivity and quality of control of modern microelectronic products in a wide range of design standards and technologies. It can be used as an additional software tool for the analysis of integrated circuits in conjunction with automatic testing of semiconductor wafers.

The advantage over similar means of analysis and control lies in the development and application of new methods for digital processing of graphic information and optical control of the topology of modern microelectronic products. The institute is looking for industrial partners for the application and further development of the SP IPA.
Advantages and Innovations
The SP IPA is designed for processing and analyzing images of VLSI topological layers and preparing for topology restoration, which will reduce the complexity of the design and manufacture of integrated circuits, improve manufacturing quality, and increase yield.

The world level is provided by the development and application of new methods for pre-processing and analysis of images of control areas and an increase in the productivity and accuracy of optical control of the VLSI topology.
