What we do.
Our mission? Keep Moore’s Law—the prediction that integrated circuits (ICs) would decrease in cost and increase in performance, two-fold, in roughly two-year increments–on track. Your phone, tablet, phablet, and an increasing number of electronic devices are powered by integrated circuits (aka microchips). Each chip is the end product of the semiconductor lithography process, an integral part being the optical lithography step that is enabled by a light source. Light sources are Cymer’s specialty, specifically Deep Ultraviolet (DUV) and Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) light sources.
