I think any litho-related consortium work esp. EUV is still carried out by SEMATECH and IMEC. This new consortium looks interesting because it is initiated by the Japanese government.
I think Taiwan and China got snubbed because of the Diayou Islands and East China Sea incident. That's why TSMC is strangely absent from the initial listing. Hopefully some Taiwan participants would be allowed.
what does chip technology mean...lithography technology or resist or design or other. I do not think that it is related to lithography or resist because Intel is already supporting EUV and it does not make sense to create another consortium without any litho partner.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
