The fact is, 20 nm has come to pass without EUV. And EUV is already too slow for 20 nm and below. http://www.electroiq.com/articles/sst/2012/06/euvl-workshop-focuses-on-source-power-timing.html

ASML is perfectly happy to sell two wildly profitable immersion tools for double patterning instead of one unprofitable jerryrigged, Rube Goldberg soft x-ray machine

The ONLY inevitabilities are death and taxes. I assure you EUV (x-ray!) is not inevitable.

The industry will be waiting for the next big player for EUV manufacturers. The manufacturer that is able to produce EUV litho machines for the market will stand to get an early lead, an because the global demand will be met by them, they will gain a sizeable share in the market as well. This would be an interesting development to follow, and hopefully there will be more updates on this. Mary - http://www.jensenmarinedirect.com

This was from the same EE Times issue:Source problems cause EUV revenue delay, says ASML Peter Clarke 4/19/2012 8:14 AM EDT LONDON – Lithography equipment developer ASML Holding NV (Veldhoven, The Netherlands) has said that a delay in the availability of illumination power sources has prompted it to push out revenue recognition on the first two production EUV lithography machines, currently being assembled at the company's headquarters. Sound inevitable?

So it was believed at 65, 45, 32, 22, 14, and, now, 10nm. Inevitable at each node. Definition:unable to be avoided, evaded, or escaped; certain; necessary: an inevitable conclusion. 2. sure to occur, happen, or come; unalterable: The inevitable end of human life is death. Particularly as regards #2, is EUV as "inevitable" as death? If so, I now feel immortal!

Thank goodness the "race" to EUV, which started as a sprint (coming at 65nm), has "ended" in a marathon (1nm?). Sadly, for those users who invested their careers in EUV, it is more like SETI, the endless search for extraterrestrial life. It may happen, but not likely in our lifetime. Does Mr. Meurice care? Of course not. EUV/SXPL (yes, fans, it is STILL x-ray). As long as he can sell 2 immersion tools without meaningful competition, EUV remains a shell game.

I think now a problem is EUV cannot be superior for more than one or two nodes over the existing lithography. That may not be enough to justify. Also the issues are not monitored completely enough. Besides source power, how about defects, LER?

Is not it inevitable that EUV will eventually win at some lower process node?

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.
