Since companies need to make money with multiple patterning to continue funding EUV, they remove the last reason to pursue EUV.

OOOPS, I meant to say "exactly the same statement... two years ago" at SPIE Litho conference!! MP Divakar

@MarkLapedus: I heard exactly the same statement at the SPIE Lithography show: at 14-nm, Intel will continue to use 193-nm immersion, plus a double-patterning with pitch splitting. @unknown multiplier: I am with you on this; I remain skeptical about EUV by 2013. It may be delayed until 2015 or 2016. MP Divakar

Intel is really keen on defects, and the EUV inspection tools it wants are not available until 2015, so EUV would be late for 7 nm as well.

At 5 nm, a silicon atom is already about 5% of the linewidth, so the natural roughness is already prohibitive.

EUV definitely will not be ready by 2013, then they will say it's for 7 nm.

Hi! Just a curiosity: why do you say litho road map ends around 7 nm? Is there any physical barrier for that technology? Thanks.

The litho road map ends around 7 nm. Even if EUV can catch the 10 nm node, it will only going to be a two-generation tool, it will never justify the cost.
