Well given that these EUV tools are now producing wafers at least 10x slower than immersion tools, I think it will take 10x as long to deploy. Immersion took about 3 years (2003-2006) to go from first prints to production. So I think 30 years (from 2006 at best say) will be about the right time for the same level of maturity, at the current pace. Even if we grant half the required speed in 2012, that still means six years out from there (2018). And the amount of data to be collected for module and mask development is more immense than it was for immersion.

Last year, ASML gave around 20% bonus...i wonder how much would it be this year.

I guess I interpreted "several" as more than four, which is the stated maximum number of 3100's out there, the fifth being about to ship.

IMEC announced that it exposed its first wafers with the preproduction tool. I don't believe they said how many wafers they exposed. TSMC also has an NXE:3100, as do, apparently other firms (Intel is believed to have an NXE:3100 also). I take it from Meurice's statement that TSMC and/or other NXE:3100 customers have already exposed wafers but have not made a public statement about it.

"...Meurice said that by the middle of this month ASML will have shipped a total of five NXE:3100 tools." "Earlier this week, IMEC announced that it exposed its first EUV wafers using the NXE:3100." Where can he get "Several customers having already exposed hundreds of wafers..."?

It is mentioned "several customers" exposed " hundreds of wafers" with the 3100, but they haven't even shipped five yet. What gives?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
