The 14 nm ramp should proceed at Ireland, but with less training. In the complementary approach, EUV is still one of two exposure passes because mask defects are not manageable yet for 10 nm. So it's still more expensive than current double patterning.

Confirmed P1272 14nm has technical problems. Communications version of Atom ship date now pushed until 2nd half of 2014.

If true, this is possibly a first for Intel. Since it is occurring so near the "end", it's particularly scary. It is only their second finfet or trigate generation.

Intel Ramp engineer claimed moral at Intel was at a all time low. Many forced plant shut down over December holidays. 14nm delay relates to "significant process problems" Even worse his manager said there is talk about a work force reduction in 2013 that will be announced in Q1.

Intel has announced that they are going to build yet another Fab building right next to D1X in Hillsboro, Oregon. It will be slightly bigger than D1X. (Total area in the buildings will be larger than the Pentagon.) My assumption was that they were going to use it to bring up non-X86 processes as per various rumors. A part of this would be to clone their World's-Best Fab Bringup team. That team is concentrating on bringing up D1X real soon now. If/when they succeed, they would normally do the copy-exactly to Arizona and apparently Ireland. OTOH, they can bring the new building up while training a second team. The decision to use the new building for other device types or X86 can be made based on market conditions a year or two out.

14 nm broadwell not shown at idf this year was another possible hint.

Intel needs to houseclean his organizations, in particular for its fabs, in order to lower the cost. The work efficiency in intel is not as good as that of leading foundries.

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.
