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.

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

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

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

GlobalFoundries already gave up on EUV it seems: http://semimd.com/blog/2012/12/11/globalfoundries-accelerates-10nm-process/ “10nm will be optical,” he said. “We have evidence that we can do 7nm with immersion.”

The facts are in process shrink below 1/10th of wavelength will require multiple patterning. where increased cost of EUV equipment break even with double, triple patterning costs still being played out with rapid development in the EUV space. If they would just hire me it could go much faster. :)
