ASML's vision is to enable affordable microelectronics that improve the quality of life. To achieve this, our mission is to invent, develop, manufacture and service advanced technology for high-tech lithography, metrology and software solutions for the semiconductor industry.
ASML's guiding principle is continuing Moore's Law towards ever smaller, cheaper, more powerful and energy-efficient semiconductors.
This results in increasingly powerful and capable electronics that enable the world to progress within a multitude of fields, including healthcare, technology, communications, energy, mobility, and entertainment.
San Jose, California, 22 February 2016 – ASML Holding NV (ASML) today announced a partnership with Nippon Control System Corporation (NCS) to integrate their products from optical proximity correction (OPC) to mask data preparation (MDP) on a common platform, delivering improvements in mask tape-out productivity and patterning performance in wafer fabrication. Semiconductor manufacturers will now be able to deploy ASML’s computational lithography products and NCS’ MDP products into a seamless process flow for a faster and more accurate design to mask (D2M) solution.
