Yeah it's doubtful that ASML will let its EUV kill off its cash cow immersion line.

How quickly will ASML, Nikon or Canon move to the next wavelength or lithography?

ASML has market share, but they are also spending quite a bit on EUV tool development. Since it is in the best interest of the semi industry to have at least two lithography vendors, in the past Intel has made sure ASML and Nikon both got enough orders to stay healthy. Since the leading edge production tools are 193 nm immersion, that can still take place as Nikon is still competitive there.

This is true today but that does not say what will happen tomorrow. Watch out MIT and their new litho project. Who knows?

No doubt. ASML has the lead. The govt support for Nikon and Canon are over... esp with the tsunami. Never believe you are invincible though. Remember GCA?

ASML has definately taken advantage of the immersion market and the delay of the next generation tools is helping feed that lead as foundries buy more immersion tools to implement double patterning. Their future dominance will depend on which technology finally wins out and who brings the best solution first. It's all still very unclear suggesting that continued proliferation of immersion for double, triple and even quaduple (DP with double dipole) patterning will continue in the near future.

Does anyone have projections for the sales of EUVL systems, say for 2015 to 2024, assuming that the 2015 date is met by ASML?

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.
