Power source problem solved for EUV

Extreme ultraviolet lithography – or EUV – has been regarded as the saviour of semiconductor manufacturing for more than a decade. Originally intended to be deployed at the 32nm node, the technology has been delayed by the inability to generate the required power level that would enable the wafer throughput demanded by manufacturers. Now, the earliest that EUV is likely to be deployed is at the 7nm node.
