MEMS and the mask muddle: small isn't cheap

Abstract:
As silicon chip features get smaller, the cost of making the masks that print them is exploding. At 90 nanometers, the next step down for chip makers, a set of masks costs $1.5 million. At the step beyond that, 65 nanometers, those masks will probably cost about $4 million. And a single chip can use 20 or more masks.
