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

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.

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

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

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.

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?

Bi-directional M1 is commonly practiced but not necessary. In fact, given EUV's inherent X-Y asymmetry, unidirectional will always be lithographically preferred.

I'm guessing if they develop a pellicle process they are going to have to bring it up well above 60W.

Any energy consumption estimations?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
