    Semiconductor guy - here's why Glofo and Samsung apply hybrid approach

    They can't get both (frontend and backend) done - so they hype the 14nm FinFet frontend:
    Cost is not the only challenge in moving down to 14nm, Bohr said. For one thing, there's the problem of creating the interconnects in a chip so dense with transistors. "Well, you've got skinnier wires," he said, "and can you get copper stuffed into that shallow trench with good reliability, good performance? We have that challenge."

    But the interconnect challenge is still on track, he insists. "We're doing it," he said. "I'm confident. I know that we can do this on 14."

    • semiconductor guy worked 20 years in the industry - and he still does not understand RC delay.
      Glofo/Samsung hybrid finfet is a hoax...
      A hoax is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as truth. It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment, or rumors, urban legends ...
