Re: Unexpected consequence ?
I will wager that long before twenty years are up EUV will not be necessary.
I wonder how far away we are from mass produced non-silicon based chips?
In any case, it is claimed that Huawei or a Chinese research institute has already filed patents for a breakthrough in lithography.
The question is whether that can be brought to market as a product at some point.
I'd say a definite 'yes' with so much funding being ploughed into the Chinese industry and again, in well under twenty years.
