Intel has 10nm w/o EUV

This just in from Intel fellow Mark Bohr:

"Intel has a way to achieve good density and good cost-per-transistor on our 10 nm technology without the use of EUV. 

We are continuing to explore EUV and non-EUV options for our 7nm technology."

This will for sure put some cheers on the face of semiconductor manufacturing industry as this will ultimately result in lower cost and complexicity. However, ASML has to go a long way to give more than 100wph that will make EUV truely production ready.

Rick, is it using the existing methods such as unidirectional patterns, mask optimization and breaking the chip patterns into 2-3 masks etc or something more innovative.

Besides light source power, EUV already has other resolution-limiting issues like shot noise and multilayer angular bandwidth. And it's still nowhere near 100 WPH.

They use "pitch quartering" for 15-22 nm half-pitch lines. There can be up to four additional "cut" exposures.

@Wilbur: I did not know to ask but I will request an IBM engineer jump on and answer.

@resistion: 34 wafers/hour to be specific

I thought he was referring to Intel's 10 nm, otherwise the EUV requiring these would defeat the purpose.

34 WPH is still below the previous 70 WPH target. 20 mJ/cm2 dose is also quite noisy below 20 nm.

introducting more masks and cut masks should drive the price per die so economically EUV will be much better IMO.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
