Latest Updates

 

April 7, 2014 - New Release - the Strategic Cost Model - 2014 new version - Beta 04 is now in Beta testing. The new version changes the Strategic Model from a a generic ITRS half-pitch based model to a company specific node based model. This is a forward looking model that forecasts logic out to the 5nm node and memory to the 1x/1z node with detailed wafer costs and equipment and materials sets. BUY NOW
