Are you a Master or Bachelor student in Electrical Engineering? And do you have affinity with High voltage, electronics design and knowledge of Power Electronics? Then this assignment could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

ASML’s lithography machines are being used by our customers to create the next generation microchips. In EUV, extreme ultraviolet light is used in the lithography process. The light generated by the source is translated into the scanner, and modified such that the right distribution of light arrives at the reticle and the wafer. The EDEV EUV Wafer Positioning group develops the electronics for several (moving) EUV subsystems. The group is also responsible for the High-Voltage (HV) amplifier for clamping the Wafer onto the wafer stage in a vacuum environment. Wafer clamps are crucial to make lithography happen against the ever demanding specs on overlay, focus, and throughput while ensuring high availability.

Job Description

You will be working in the EUV Wafer positioning team and contribute to an improved design for the high voltage amplifier. Your tasks will consist of the following:
• Understanding the environment where the HV will be used. Key words: creepage and clearance distances, Paschen law,dynamics;
• Perform market scan for the latest status on HV converter topologies;
• Investigate on how to incorporate the HV amplifier in a dynamic environment;
• Write the required documentation.


You are a Master apprentice or Bachelor graduation student in Electrical Engineering. You have affinity with High voltage, electronics design and knowledge of Power Electronics. You have good analytical skills, can work independently and can think out of the box. You have good knowledge of English, both verbal and written.

This is an internship assignment with a duration of 3-5 months, for 5 days a week. The start date is as soon as possible.

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.

Other information

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
