Chip History: Industry Legends
Yan Borodovsky : Breaking the
limits, solving the unsolvable …
how innovation really happens
SPIE is next week, so I thought it would be fun to
go back about ten years ago to see how a
lithography legend describes how innovation really
happens. At the time, Yan Borodovsky was a
Senior Intel Fellow and Director of Advanced
Lithography. What’s been done with lithography
over the last 50 years has been critical keeping
Moore’s Law on pace and it’s a real testament to
the innovativeness of the people in our industry.
Hat’s off to all those lithographers around the
world who are still working to move it forward.
