Working in EUV requires strong denial skills.

Isn't it late for KLA to join in especially when the plans to introduce EUV is by 2012-2013? There would be significant metrology challenges and i am not sure whether the development of metrology for optical can be used for other litho tools.

CNSE is precisely available to try out the next generation lithography choices. It is a research environment might not be practical for years. But ti does two things: research to find alternatives to hurdles seen today, and teaching next-generation litho guys the ropes of the trade. Sometimes our patience fuse is too short as far as litho progress is concerned. KLA's a important metrology player in the next-gen equation: if you can't measure it, you can't build it.

I mean wrap as in close it, for the reasons you stated, given the timing inconsistency. Intel and Samsung were included in the Nikkei news, and they are the main drivers, but it's not consistent with their schedule.

This is how to do it. Get the pool and do some real useful things. This is good. I think they will have value in this strategy

A wrap as in going into production as is? My understanding is that there are still some significant issues with EUV, including the lack of an EUV pellicle as well as questions about the power sources and other issues.

Nikkei reports Japan-based consortium focused on EUV by 2015. Meanwhile, Intel already scheduling 7 nm Pelican Lake in 2016, which leaves no time for dotting all the i's. It's a wrap.

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.
