@yalanland. It is the power of the EUV light source that is the limiting factor. A couple of different types of source have been tried. As well as getting the source to shine that bright I believe that reliability and uptime is an issue.
If you go brighter but have to take the machine down to faff around with the source for large periods of time the wafer throughput you gain during the uptime you more than lose in the downtime.
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.
