Does that imply that Samsung will rule the foundry world? Will they take over from Intel the mantle of logic process technology leader?

Samsung will rule ARM world: 1.) they have their own fabs they are foundry and IDM; and they compete directly with their customers (Apple) 2.)they leverage NAND, LPDRAM and display cutting out the middleman Apple gave Samsung business and they created a monster. It's going to be a repeat when Samsung entered the DRAM market about 25 (?) years ago. "Only analog/power semi guys will stay and digital is pretty much owned by a few." IMHO that's exactly why TI quit mobile business

Fabless-foundry model is broken and TSMC is recently quoting the mask NRE of 16/14nm finfet over $10M. Even this goes down to below $10M over time, the NRE for 10nm or 7nm will be prohibitable for many except a few like Qualcomm, Apple, Samsung and maybe Nvidia, Broadcom and Marvell. The rest will be consolidated and disappear. Only analog/power semi guys will stay and digital is pretty much owned by a few.

Maybe even triple, 16 over 7 ~2.3.

Good question. GloFo calls it "risk" production. Samsung just calls it "production." I would assume it is a step short of volume production but clearly out of the test shuttle stage.

So even EUV would require double patterning at 7 nm? Oi vay!

Rick what does first production silicon by end of the year mean?

Hi Rick. NXE's are EUV machines. Immersion systems are the NXT's and those with an 'i' after a number.

NXE is EUV, NXT is 193 nm immmersion. I think it's a little early to spend much time thinking about 7 nm node today. But if we only have the currently expected EUV technology, we would have to use double patterning.

I plan a separate slideshow using several foils on DSA and other double patterning tricks Patton talked about. Stay tuned.

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.
