Machines for even 28nm will not be easy to procure. Most of the machines are back order upto 10 yrs in advance.Objective of this funding is to move to 28nm node.
The plan is apparently .
SCL will do the designing and a pvt commercial partner will fabricate it .
Readings between the lines .. the pvt entity will have to source all the lithography machines and figure out how to fabricate designs provided by SCL..
Timeframe is 10 years to achieve 28nm .
By this time TSMC would have reached the smallest node size allowed by physics.
Our aims should not be to jump to 5nm or below directly and compete with the big players. Let us establish us for regular use nodes.
