Profile of ASM Lithography





ASM Lithography sells 'wafersteppers', developed inhouse and produced in the Netherlands, to makers of semi-conductors. These wafer-steppers are photolithography projection systems, an essential and costly component for IC production.

ASM Lithography was founded in 1984 to address lithography issues in manufacturing very-large-scale integrated (VLSI) circuits and ultra-large-scale integrated (ULSI) circuits. In March 1995, ASM Lithography held its initial public offering of 12.6 million shares. The company is publicly traded on both the Amsterdam Stock Exchange and NASDAQ under the symbols ASML and ASMLF.

ASM Lithography operates applications laboratories at its global headquarters in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and at its U.S. headquarters in Tempe, Arizona. Sixteen local sales and service facilities are located worldwide. The company provides customers with a full range of support, from advanced process and product applications knowledge to complete around-the-clock service support with uptime performance guarantees.

ASM Lithography has technology agreements with leading IC manufacturers and R&D institutions in the U.S., Asia Pacific and Europe, including the Joint European Submicron Silicon Initiative (JESSI) and the European Support Program for Research & Development and Information Technology (ESPRIT). In addition, working with numerous technology centers such as Philips Research Laboratories, Philips Center for Fabrication Technology, the Carl Zeiss Foundation and Hewlett-Packard has enabled ASM Lithography to compete very effectively with other stepper makers in the international market place.
