It is nice to see the roadmap! I wonder what the future holds for the processes beyond 14nm? The concept of a 3Ghz dual core ARM 9 is really appealing. Just for now I will have to wait...

There is a real challenge in process development and control of 3D and sub-22nm structures and patterns. Metrology roadmaps have identified the need for 3D microscopy of 40 to one and better depth to width measurement and imaging which is not avaiable today. Perhaps ATIC should consider world leadership in this critical area.

Has the company presented a roadmap for making money or at least not bleeding their soul out? That would be roadmap that would shock the world; roadmaps based on dreams, delays and losses are hardly worth discussing. Keep the losses WELL hidden from the Abu Dhabians, we might be able to rebalance energy trade on account of them! Good job GloFo, make up those mammoth operating losses on wafer volume! :-(

If they already made the jump to DP at 20 nm, they will re-use that at 14 nm. EUV is already late for their 14 nm development.

If graphics and networking require different packaging from mobile, it's a totally different game from just silicon, and Global has virtually no control in this aspect.

AMD is better of counting on TSMC than GF roadmap on paper

It is not a bad deal if Abu Dabi keeps unemployment in semiconductor industry low in USA and Germany

yeah, its surprising to read only the future roadmap. Do you know how well they fair quarterly?

@Rick Merritt: it was good to meet with you again at GloFlo's conference. In the afternoon tracks, I sat in the manufacturing track and got some good info on their packaging and MEMS plans. I am not how ever sold on the fab-less model for large volume MEMS which is still an IDM play led by ST & TI. @greenpattern: you are some what partially correct. The gray-shaded area is like this: if there is backend fab activity (like flipchip, RDL, Si interposers) in a product, then the options are wide open, a fab like GloFlo can get that action though packaging houses can also play. But being upstream in that flow gives fabs an advantage. Dr. MP Divakar
