Indeed, Intel's Mark Bohr whom I met and talked with briefly later in the day remains bullish. See http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4403075/IBM--Intel-face-off-in-22-nm-process-at-IEDM

Upper metal layers should never require EUV or double patterning, so cost increase is exaggerated, obviously by EUV supporters.

Imec bought EUV tools quite aggressively to get the member interest. But members beginning to understand not worth it.

Moore's law has been predicted to hit a major bump in the road since 500nm. IMEC's R&D funding levels are based on the level of panic that is instilled in the industry. "According to experts", then exclusively citing Chicken Littles from the same outfit, is a journalism joke EE Times (not aimed at you Rick - this is UBM's broad spectrum destruction of what was EET and EDN). If it were Intel or IBM freaking out with a slideshow pitch, or even having one of their people cited in addition to IMEC, we might be justified in taking this R&D panhandling nonsense seriously.

Murphy is always two steps behind Moore.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
