Why not build your critical layer litho fab near an existing beam line. If you attenuate the beam to feed multiple tools and reduce the power, you can distribute the cost and prevent reticle damage.

The power sources for EUV are late, the reticle technology is lacking, the resists are not ready yet, and some estimates put the cost of the first production tools at well over $100 million each. In addition both the sources and the tools themselves are currently massive in size compared to 193 nm immersion tools. I believe that currently EUV litho would be even more expensive than quadruple patterning, let alone double.

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.
