It's fair to expect 40 nm features on a sub-20 nm mask. That is almost like 45 nm direct write today. It could be more than day's write time.

It might be worse than that. Considering Mapper uses 13000 beams for 10 WPH, that would mean 1300 hr write times for single beam direct write. If higher beam voltages used, it could be much longer.

Mapper has updated its concept...The total number of beams in the final mapper system will be 13000*49 (=0.6m) for 22nmHP. And for 10WPH, there will be 10 tools writing simultaneously. You can do the math now!

I always wanted the direct write to wafer for prototypes. Seems like such a good idea, it just isn't as easy as you would expect.

Irony is direct write had the earliest forms of multiple-exposure patterning. Still in use today. Now optical has to have it as well.

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.
