@peter.clarke: some heads roll at GF so it is natural every one wants to know the inside scoop. Daniel Nenni had the guessing game (TSMC's yield at 28nm) for a while on Semiconductor Professionals @LinkedIn. I don't remember the final consensus (correlated?) yield figure but it was no where north of 90%. According to this other post also by Nenni, it would seem quite difficult to get yields above 80% as one goes to 32/28nm nodes: http://dnenni.wordpress.com/2009/09/20/tsmc-restrictive-design-rules-and-3228nm-yield/ In addition to the continuing statistical effects, it appears proximity and stress effects are more pronounced as the nodes are shrunk.

What I have got, you have got. If anyone else is able to share yield numbers, it would be interesting!!!!

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.
