The 450 mm program is way off in the future. Most OEM toolmakers are not anxoius to spend the money to develop this platform when they hve barely broke evn on the development of 300 mm.

This is not a suprising news, especially nowadays when everybody in the market struggles with extended LTs and allocation issues since long. Almost all founderies announced plans to spend tremendous amount of money to their fabs such as TSMC, GB, Samsung, Intel etc. However i'm still missing a part in the puzzle. Still no plan to switch 450mm wafers? Why nobody is focusing on larger scale wafer processing? Only intel had some movements but rest?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
