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.

"..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.

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

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?

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?

SPIE Keynote from Intel showed EUV out at 10 nm (still in pilot), with only 193 nm extension being used for production at 2H 2015.

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

I wonder if those resolution results are representative for high throughput conditions. They are flogging a dead horse!

Bring on angstroms! The horse died when the name was changed from soft x-ray projection lithography to EUV. Who says words don't matter.

Why did they present this at ISSCC? The conference is about circuits and designs, not about devices and processes, don't even mention lithography!

The 2D feature resolution is still not beating 22 nm and roughness about 15% of that. Photon shot noise is not negligible anymore.

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.
