If I have a trench filled with 4 lines and 5 spaces, and then I decrease the trench width 10%, gonna get defects.

At what edge separations do the lamellae start getting confused and become like spaghetti? Typically a distance of several lamellae?

If the edge is off, it could cause more problems.

Any idea how expensive is this approach? There must be lots of repairs required...Kris

Good question @resistion - I don't know, but I think for critical levels of something like a memory device with repeating cells at minimum pitch not very many. You would likely be limited to Tela on-grid type layout rules for the device.

This company is doing well in most of their medical products, I am surprised they are taking this path. It is far better to outsource some of these than developing them in-house.

As I understand, each pitch/duty cycle combination is a different formulation, so how many does one need to keep in store?

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.
