Basically, ASML's lithography equipment system uses optical principles to shoot light beams on the wafer, thereby engraving fine circuit diagrams. At present, ASML's DUV (Deep Ultraviolet) lithography system is the main force for mass production of wafers in the current semiconductor industry. In order to help chip manufacturers mass-produce various nodes and technology processes, ASML also provides "immersion" and "dry" lithography solutions, showing excellent productivity, as well as imaging and lithography overlay performance, helping mass production of the most advanced Logic and memory chips.
EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Light) continues company banner design to iterate technology and break through the limits of wafer production. ASML is currently the only lithography equipment manufacturer in the world that uses EUV (Extreme Ultraviolet Light). EUV is the lithography technology that the global semiconductor manufacturers are striving for. Its success not only continues Moore's Law, but also prevents the progress of integrated circuits from stagnant in the 7nm generation mass-produced in 2018.
Now EUV lithography technology has been applied The 7- and 5-nanometer generation will be mass-produced, and the next 3-nanometer generation will also be put into mass production in the second half of 2022, leading integrated circuit manufacturing to continue to move forward. Unboxing ASML New Year's Gift Box: Completely Telling the Story and Secrets of the Birth of the Chip ASML specially made a New Year's gift box this year. The contents include: a pair of "ASML playing cards", which can not only be used to play cards and communicate with relatives and friends during the annual vacation, but also the relevant introduction of ASML is attached to the card, which can also be added during the game. Knowledge to keep up with semiconductor industry trends. In addition, there is a box of Dutch pancakes, called "Dutch Wafer Cake", which symbolizes that ASML is a Dutch company and is homophonic to the industrial concept of "wafer".
