New manufacturing technology enables vertical 3D NAND transistors, higher capacity SSDs

extremetech: Applied Materials has taken the wraps off a new etching system meant to turn vertically stacked, three-dimensional transistors from lab experiments into commercial reality. The new Centura Avatar solves multiple problems facing manufacturers who are interested in 3D NAND but find their current equipment not up to the task of actually building it. While we’re specifically talking about 3D NAND today, a number of the challenges to scaling flash memory apply to scaling CPU logic as well.
