You make a very good point and yes, the lesson learned was an important one.

Not sure American independence was a British failure :-) America could have never remained British, and many Brits understood that at the time; that is why they did not try too hard to keep America really. Note that a big portion of the house of Commons was pro-independence at the time, not only because it was morally just, but also because it was the pragmatic thing to do. As far as revolutions go the US revolution was pretty tame, and that reflects the divided British opinion on it. GB went on to build a much bigger Empire afterwards, and that's the true character of British people: recognise when the game is over early on, get out, and invest in something else :-) Many countries would do well to follow the British example.... And the same applies to the semiconductor business, and any other enterprise really.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
