The role of lithography

The phenomenal growth of the semiconductor industry has been driven by Moore’s Law, named after Intel co-founder Gordon Moore. In 1965, Moore predicted that the number of components on a chip would double every 12 months; he later adjusted the period to two years. Moore's Law has inspired generations of engineers to push technology forward, as manufacturers strive to stay ahead of their competitors and fulfil the prediction.

As a company that makes the lithography machines to manufacture these chips, Moore’s Law also drives our business. In fact, the key to making transistors on a chip smaller is lithography.
