Since it is a 1:1 technology can you really write perfect 22nm and smaller features on the master? Here you don't have the 4:1 leverage.

The defect yield of EUV or imprint is low enough that the cost overall will still be higher than double patterning. Multiple reworks still a form of multiple patterning.

Well, those late followers obviously contributed least to the technology development.

@resistion, I do not see why is it unfair for late adopters to gain an economic advantage in the scenario you envisage? Being the first adopter does not give anybody a divine right to succeed.

I do not dispute the cost efficiency of the replication. But the write time is ~ 2wks for 1 nA beam current and a sq. cm area.

In the 2012-3 timeframe, all the 193 nm immersion customers are either using double patterning to get ahead or staying behind with single patterning at 4x nm. If a sudden reduction of litho cost occurred in 2014-5, those who stayed behind and avoided the massive costs of double patterning would benefit more, somewhat unfairly.

If EUV tools are available in 2011-2012, they will most likely be beta tools which cost well over $100 million each and run at a few wafers per hour. No company can afford that kind of "leadership".

The ebeam write time for imprint masks is virtually irrelevant. The ebeam written masks will be used for masters to make very cheap (~$5K) mask replicas using a specially designed imprint mask replication tool. A master can produce thousands and thousands of replicas, thus amortizing the master cost to virtually zero.

even with NA = 1.3, interferometric tools give you ~ 45 nm pitch with 193 nm light. Plus double patterning you get to 22 nm. That's a one generation tool. Let alone the lack of maturity and versatility of the interferometric tools.

Yes, it is happening in China where all the big firms are pumping research money. They make so much abroad and hate to send back to US to avoid paying taxes. Suddenly they have to spend that money offshore. That is where it is happening
