re: 450-mm brings confusion to supply chain

I had heard there is an intermediate wafer size between 300mm and 450mm which is MORE cost effective than going to 450mm. Do any of the equipment manufacturers have comment on this?

I had heard there was an "intermediate" wafer size between 300 and 450mm which is more cost effective from an equipment and infrastructure point of view. It would still provide a path for reduced $$/mm2 and in a more manageable way. Comments from the equipment industry?

C'mon guys? How many people think the wafer size is unlimited. What's next? A 1 meter wafer?!? I predict Dr. Moore's Law will soon continue along other tracks than wafer size. You heard it here first! :)

It will be interesting to see the responses we get from our 5th annual process technology survey (currently underway at http://www.wwk.com/2011survey.pdf). The responses from the previous 4 surveys on 450mm manufacturing indicated more than 6 years out (39% responded never), more than 6 years out (56% responded never), beyond 2015(17% responded never), and beyond 2017(38% responded never).

Is the industry going down the wrong path with 450-mm?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

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.
