The results are in for our latest surveys in electronics:
 
So here it is, after four weeks of polling to get the industry’s view on two of the hottest questions in semiconductors.
 
If 450mm happens, who will have funded it?
             14% — Suppliers
             19% — Chip makers
             50% — 1-3 Chip mkrs
             12% — ISMI
                0% — SEMI
                5% — Government
 
So, the industry voted that it will essentially be a consortium of top chip makers who funds 450mm. As for EUV, it does not look like it’s too far off, with 48% predicting it’s arrival in about 10 years.
 
When will EUV make it to production:
            15% — 2010 - 2014
            48% — 2015 - 2019
            26% — 2020 - 2024
             7% — 2025 or after
 4% — Never
 
Here are the new surveys:

What’s the difference between an industry analyst and a stock analyst? When the industry analyst’s forecast is wrong, it’s because the analyst messed up. When the stock analyst’s forecast is wrong, it’s because the company missed expectations.
 
Advertisers – check out our complete new ad campaign interface. It now comes with a complete set of tools to manage your campaigns, message test, and see the impact your efforts are having. You can see how many impressions each ad is making, as well as the number of click-throughs it is getting. You can pause campaigns, reactivate them, or just permanently delete them. You can now buy multiple ads and keywords without going through checkout until you are finished. You can set a fixed budget for everything. You can even set up e-mail warnings to notify you when your account’s budget is about to be spent and the ads will stop. You can also set-up e-mail warnings for each ad to let you know when they hit so many impressions or click-throughs. WeSRCH’s push technology allows you to know exactly what’s going on, when, or when nothing is going on. We carefully designed the interface to get the most out of your precious time and budgets.
 
In addition to improving the advertising section, we changed the formula for placing the hot papers at the top, because the early adopters of WeSRCH, like Mark Bohr, continued to get all the hits. So now we are only using the last three months of data to post these. So it should mix it up a bit more. We also added lots of small features to improve navigation. I hope you enjoy it.
