    Advanced Node Wafer Fab Utilization: Over the years, VLSI has been asked time and again if we could get at fab utilization by device class for advanced nodes. I've tried and failed to do it almost as many times. It's so wanted and difficult to do that Risto calls it, "The Holy Grail." The problem hasn't been in coming up with theoretical algorithms. The problem has been in having enough of the right data series to triangulate on the numbers. Anyway, I think I have finally cracked it with much help from Andrea and his team. So, I present this experimental data series… The results are pretty much as expected, with some important surprises.
