Advanced Semiconductor Process Cost Trends

Advanced Semiconductor Process Cost Trends
by Scotten Jones on 12-13-2016 at 4:00 pm

The cost trend for leading edge semiconductor technologies is a subject of some controversy in the industry. Cost is a complex issue with many interacting factors and much of the information out in the industry is in my opinion misleading or incorrect. In this article, I will discuss each of the factors as well as present a view of … Read More


Life Without EUV: SPIE Day 2

Life Without EUV: SPIE Day 2
by Scotten Jones on 03-29-2015 at 11:00 pm

I previously published a summary of day 1 of SPIE and I wanted to follow up with observations from successive days.

SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, was founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies.Serving more than 256,000 constituents from approximately 155 countries, the not-for-profit Read More

Setting the Record Straight on FD-SOI Costs

Setting the Record Straight on FD-SOI Costs
by Scotten Jones on 07-20-2014 at 7:00 pm

I recently published an article on Semiwiki “Is SOI Really Less Expensive”. That article was the result of months of careful research and analysis. I looked at planar FDSOI versus bulk planar, bulk FinFETs and FinFETs on SOI at three different nodes. I took a consistent set of assumptions with respect to the fab used to run the processes,… Read More
