or semiconductor yield management. Here are some which we
A good undergraduate introduction to semiconductor fabrication
Introduction to Microelectronic Fabrication
by Richard Jaeger.
You should also consider the more recent
Microchip Fabrication: A Practical Guide to Semiconductor Processing
by Peter Van Zant. This is a math-free book. (But note that this edition
is unfortunately marred by a fair number of typographical errors.)
A more comprehensive treatment of current technology aimed at a professional
audience (and priced accordingly) can be found in the
Handbook of Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology
edited by Yoshio Nishi and Robert Doering.
short introductory text on yield prediction is
Introduction to Semiconductor Device Yield Modelling
by Albert V. Ferris-Prabhu.
comprehensive treatment of the kind of contingency tables
that Q-YIELD produces and theories behind them can be found
Construction and Assessment of Classification Rules
by David J. Hand. A statistician's book.
basic statistics necessary for understanding test results
and the significance of yield measurements can be found
in a number of books, including
Basic Business Statistics by Mark Berenson
and David Levine. You
may also enjoy the less complete (but more readable) treatment
The Cartoon Guide To Statistics by Larry Gonick
