We're moving technology forward.
In fact, we’re probably a part of the electronic device you’re using right now.
Our lithography technology – which uses light to print tiny patterns on silicon – is fundamental to mass producing semiconductor chips. With it, the world’s top chipmakers are creating better performing, cheaper chips.
We measure progress in nanometers – and we’ve been making giant leaps on this tiny scale since 1984.
35 years ago, we started in a leaky shed next to a Philips building in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and have now evolved into a global industry leader, with more than 28,000 people working at over 60 locations in 16 countries and regions worldwide. R&D, manufacturing, and customer support are the pillars of our organization.
Today our holistic lithography portfolio includes the hardware, software, and services that enable our customers to continually increase the value and reduce the cost of a chip, and so unlock the potential of technology to tackle some of society’s toughest challenges.

Aligning lithography to the nanometer
Meet ASML Fellow Simon Mathijssen and learn how he and his colleagues ensure layers of microchips align with nanometer accuracyRead the story
Our customers include all of the world's leading chipmakers, who use our product portfolio to manufacture a wide range of semiconductor chips.
We provide our customers with everything they need – hardware, software and services – to mass produce patterns on silicon, allowing them to increase the value and lower the cost of a chip.
