maybe the last presentation we will see from a big player. Beyond 14nm node, is impossible. Unless electron-beam lithography has something under their sleeve?

I think this industry is stalling due to the limitations of resolution. The big players have relied on Moore's law as the backbone of their road-map.

Even at 14 nm node, there will be more double patterning layers than multi-patterning layers for sure. ASML has already said EUV would only be introduced on a few layers, allowing mix-and-match with immersion, but by that time, even the middle layers would be requiring double patterning.

Oh, and the TSVs are supposed to provide much greater bandwidth than today's wire bonded stacks

They did not give size of the chip. But Hou did say the test run with Wide IO was only to test out the various aspects of the process and the Wide IO IP which would actually be used with a through silicon via stack in commercial chips.

Intel's Mark Bohr has already said he is considering quad patterning immersion at 10nm. See http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4396146/Intel-sees-quad-patterned-path-to-10-nm-chips

With a wavelength of 13.5 nm and NA of 0.33, 10 nm corresponds to k1 less than 0.25, so indeed the current NXE:3300 won't be useful for very long.

Worse yet, at least some expect 10 nm may require double patterning even for EUV. http://semimd.com/blog/2012/09/17/will-euv-miss-another-node/ And still worse yet, the EUV throughput is still far short of target, so ASML has acquired Cymer. Apparently, they've scuttled their other EUV source vendor options. http://semimd.com/blog/2012/10/17/asml-to-acquire-cymer/

Rick : Couple questions about the TSMC 2.5-D Test vehicle you have reported. What was the footprint of the whole thing ( with 4 chips ). Did they give any reason why such a 2.5-D module will be any better than current modules / packages used in Smart Phones / Tablets ? Thx

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.
