Graduation assignment: Realize an universal low-noise digital amplifier block

Electrical engineering


In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Electrical engineering, Mechatronics


Are you a Master graduate student in Electronics with a strong background in Control Technology and Analog Design? Then this graduation project could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

In the Imaging Electronics group for EUV we develop, together with our partners, the electronics that are necessary to drive the EUV product roadmap. In order to meet the challenging imaging specs, one of the difficult problems to tackle is extremely low-noise electronics, while still meeting the high performance requirements.

Job Description

You will realize a medium-power (~50W) amplifier building block with high performance, improved diagnostics and with a digital control loop that can be scaled to the needs of different projects in terms of Voltage (<100V), Current (<5A), Noise (<30nA/√Hz), Accuracy (0.1%), and Bandwidth (>20kHz). This to quickly foresee in the needs for the development of a new machine, without having a risk on long development times. In addition to this realization, it is possible to do an investigation to the usage of the latest GaN technology in this amplifier building block and a flexible Matlab Simulink control loop model that allows for easy tuning to satisfy the different project needs.
Please note that the assignment is open for discussion during an interview.


You are a Master graduate student in Electronical Engineering with a strong background in Control Technology and Analog Design. Affinity with power electronics is a plus. You are curiosity driven, pro-active and can work independently. The English language is required, both written and verbally.

This is an graduation project for 5 days a week with duration of minimum 6-9 months. The start date is in September 2020.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 500 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

Students: Getting ready for real-world R&D
Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents. Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?
