Why are you tradingoff R&D project with startup. EUV is next generation lithography technique which might potentially replace 193-nm immersion lithography. I am sure companies are investing this technology inspite of heavy cost because they see potential in this technology.

EUV investment is similar to investment in TSV or SOI technology. How or whether it will be used is complete uncertainty. Timing is most important. Some companies don't even have 193 nm. Sometimes it seems they outsmart by waiting for a cheap solution for 15 nm and below. The last laugh will belong to whom?

The major reason why hardware investment and funding appear tougher. That can fund many more software companies. It is just capital intensive to have a decent technology in this industry.

How many much worthy R&D projects and startups could have been funded if an EUV tool were not purchased instead? A lot.
