ASML announced in its quarterly earnings call yesterday that EUV throughput with at least one customer is now up to 200 wafers/day.

Of course its wafers/HOUR which is really key. Waiting to hear back if they have any news on that.

The Q1 report was ~37 w/h and the target for commervcial use is more like 100+

How would 3d help defects? If redundancy, still need a defect-free die or part.

Rick, a guy from zvi orbach's company talked about 3d chips as a strong way to fight defects. Self assembly and  Molecular Imprints suffer strong defect rate, but at least they have the resolution. I wonder how well a combination will to solve the defect issue will work cost wise ?

Is that such a big deal ?

a 2 x 64 bit bus carrying 25 GByte/s for LP DDR ( Dual Data Rate ) means a Clock Rate of 800 MHz, not at all unusual for LP DDR 3, it works even with conventional lossy Packages.

Apple has been using them for the 5s since last Fall, had to shrink Package interconnect pitch to accomodate wider channels, but that's still a conventional PoP package. SK Hynix claims their LP DDR 3 can run at Clock Rates double that but have n't seen a SoC - DRAM module packaged in conventional PoP working at 1.6 GHz yet.

We do special loss - less Packages that clean up the Eye Diagram even at much higher Clock Rates for very high Bandwidth and low Power loss w/o having to drill any TSVs into live chips.

Key takeaway

"No matter what Intel says, Moore's Law is slowing down," said Bob Johnson, a semiconductor analyst for Gartner. "Only a few high-volume, high-performance apps can justify 20 nm and beyond." He sees problems ahead for logic chips in general. The smartphone market is nearing saturation, ultramobiles are canabalizing PCs, and "logic is running out of gas."

If logic is getting affected, that's a really big problem.

Nice crisp summary, for those of us who can't go, perennially.

There was a ton of activity at the event and many talks I could not get to, so what did I miss?

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
