It is good to see advancements in tool technology. We will need more advancements in this area to control process costs and turn times in the future.

And yet still no announcements about 450mm wafers. Not surprising how hard it is to get uniform across 300mm, let alone adding even more real estate to etch. I'm looking forward to hearing how they'll tackle 450mm.

@MarkLaPedus: it would be nice to know the throughput you mention (up to process up to 180 wafers an hour) is also valid for high aspect ratio TSV applications. Perhaps the eight process chambers for TSV applications might just as well make it a reality. AS a proponent of 3D via TSV technology, I welcome this introduction to reduce cost per wafer. How ever, it would also be nice to know the limitations of the etch process using this tool for TSV's. Dr. MP Divakar

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
