Could also be 28 nm has more design rule restrictions and fewer fabless customers. Most fabless still like to play the mature nodes like 0.18 um.

anybody knows why 90nm has the lowest shippment compared to 65nm, 130nm etc?

It's a forecast, it could be wrong. Though, beyond 0.18 or 0.13, the number of available foundries drops a lot.

I think the reason is high equipment reuse-ability between 90nm and 65nm that allowed fast migration of capacity. Did not exist between 130nm & 90nm or 65nm & 45nm.

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.
