They mean half-pitch rather than cell size, I guess.

They will probably call 18 x 18 1Z. It's 13% area reduction.

1z seems to be 16 nm apparently. I do wonder, why go beyond double patterning with any new patterning technique, just for one generation.

And this last 1Z generation is not even double the density of the prior one 1Y. If it's going to be the final generation, at least make it look like one last hurrah or going out with a bang, like 10-13 nm, and get more of your money's worth.

So finally, a company is giving up shrinking. Intrinsic variability at small nodes is a well know problem, and the complications in litho does not help. The return back to 40 nm to get 3D devices is certainly a milestone.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
