So will FinFETs revolutionize the tools industry as well. What will happen to conventional layout,schematic,spice tools. How different is FinFETs from the existing FET's and how will it affect the tool vendors ?

Intel has demonstrates 15 nm transistors in the lab several years ago. 7 nm is the width of the gate, not the channel. Even if it is for the channel, it is a three dimension thing, there are more than 1000 atoms for the cross-section.

@Alpha_mo_YF- Again, this was an error, for which I apologize. Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention. It has now been corrected.

Collaboration and competition are the yin and yang of R&D. The former conserves resources but suppresses true new innovation. The latter is where the (unforeseen) technology revolutions come from but can become prohibitively expensive and end up inhibiting new development by killing cross-hybridization of ideas between groups. Like biological evolution, it is a messy and nonlinear process.

Tunnelling has to be considered below 10 nm. It's not that helpful.

To absorb the higher cost of the development, collaboration seems to be the only choice.

well not quite true that the scaling is dead. FinFET is quite an amazing technology which will push the scaling to 7nm and beyond that there are options available but there is no clear winner.

At the 32-nm node, a chip needs to sell about 30 to 40 billion units to recoup the costs associated with it, Hsu said. At the 20-nm node, the "breakeven" point jumps to between 60 and 100 million units, Hsu said. the 32-nm node--30 to 40 billion units the 20-nm node--jumps to between 60 and 100 million units billion & million units ,billion should be million? what's wrong here?? --EEtimes editor,please answer this question.

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
