re: ISSCC: ASML says EUV best option at 10nm

EUV missed insertion at 14 nm for Intel and I've heard before that Intel thinks 10nm is possible without EUV. Where does that leave TSMC, GLOFO, and Samsung? Will Intel gap them by another node before EUV is ready?

Not at metal1. Every node a few more restrictions creep in, but it is nothing close to unidirectional. You won't get enough pin placements in the std cells without allowing 2D designs.

"..no one uses wire bends anymore..." It's true, layouts would be almost entirely cut lines.

The first slide showed power fluctuations of more than 10% - is that normal?

ASML promised 70 WPH @ 15 mJ/cm2, but what if that dose is not enough? What if need 60? They cannot ever be the cost-effective solution.

The 18 nm hp holes show large non-uniformity and the 13 nm hp lines much roughness. The end result is not just ASML's optics, it's also the resist and the mask blank defects. It's also interesting they still need multiple patterning to extend EUV's usability. Also, I'm pretty sure no one uses wire bends anymore at such small scales.
