Lithography continues to drive Moore's law
December 19, 2014
SPIE has issued the following news release: The semiconductor industry takes its impulse from Moore's law, an observation made by Gordon Moore in 1965 that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. This trend results in smaller, more powerful, and less expensive chips, allowing consumer electronics companies to deliver more functionality to their customers while decreasing product cost. To date, Moore's law has been driven by shrink (making devices ever smaller), and for this to continue, device scaling needs to continue to provide both lower cost and improved performance as we approach the 10nm node (i.e., next-generation technology) and beyond. This requires a comprehensive approach to the entire lithography process, extending the use of immersion lithography (the current state-of-the-art standard wherein a droplet of water is used as the last lens element to enable a larger lens aperture) as well as moving to the next wavelength: extreme UV (EUV) lithography.
