It may not be just cost but also the read current performance. The V-NAND could have a better read current than the smaller silicon channel, but its vertical channel direction could easily get in the way.

Really this is a stepping stone before entering into the 3D era. This step will bring the ever required memory size increase per package as an in-between development before 3D fabrication techniques are ready for manufacturing ICs.

This "Moving to 15nm" has already happened in the equipment side a couple of years back through demo and EVAL tools or upgrade of existing ones. Now is the ramping phase.

Does this move lead to any new test and measurement issues?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
