A yield formulation model to estimate the amount of lithography distortion expected in a printed layout is proposed. The yield formulation relates the probability of non-failure of a lithography hotspot with the
yield loss. The application of the yield model is demonstrated for three different layout configurations showing that unidimensional designs may improve manufacturing yield.
