[Libre-silicon-devel] Process concerns

So I fixed most of the stuff you've pointed out now.
About the oxide thickness: We wanna avoid having a break through the oxide 
when reaching 40V or so.
With 40nm we're pretty much at 40V for the breakthrough voltage.
I don't know how much the gates of your high power transistors can take?
But I guess they're also bound to the laws of physics.
We would like to sell those chips to automotive manufacturers, so going below 
40nm isn't really an option I'm afraid.
I've added another annealing step for the p/n junction implants.


PS: Hagen and I got the same results for bright field and dark field mask 
requirements, so it seems alright.
We're really close to ordering the mask set!
