Introduction

ASML US, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, bring together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Chandler, Arizona, San Jose and San Diego, California, Wilton, Connecticut, and Hillsboro, Oregon.

Job Mission

ASML is seeking a Mechatronics / Robotics Design Engineer to join the Wilton, CT development location as we break new ground in the emerging field photolithography. As ASML pushes the boundaries of nano-technology beyond current state of the art, we have developed a need to develop high precision equipment while maintaining a focus on cost effectiveness and reliability. We are looking for someone to help pioneer knowledge in this developing area.

This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Description

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Integration of “off-the-shelf” robotics into capital equipment, developing with the cross sector team all related aspects such as dynamics, end effector design, controls, etc.
  • Design of custom mechatronics systems, including translating stages, linear motors, sensors, etc.
  • Responsible for “sustaining engineering” tasks, resolving equipment design issues in a timely fashion as they arise at customer sites.
  • Participation of concept design studies for next generation equipment and subsystems.
  • Strong skills in proof of concept development and design of experiments for a wide range of project needs.
  • Take direction from ASML System Architects and Senior Engineering mentors who are leading the development effort of critical large capital equipment.

Education

BS / MS / PhD or equivalent experience.

Experience

  • 0 – 5 years of experience.
  • Mechatronics engineering background or specialization in closely related areas such as robotics or other fields.
  • Experience with understanding and troubleshooting legacy designs to determine potential risks, failure modes, and corrective actions.
  • Knowledge of “classical control theory” including frequency domain, stability (Nyquist / Bode plots), Position-Velocity-Acceleration-Jerk (PVAJ), feedback / feedforward, dynamics, gain and phase, PID, etc.
  • Basic experience with mechatronics behavior predictive modeling and methods in MATLAB / SIMULINK or similar tools, including “first principle” engineering equations and other techniques.
  • Ability to run complex mechatronic systems for test and qualification of design changes.
  • Demonstrated ability to derive conclusions from analysis and to make practical recommendations.
  • Strong technical writing and communication skills, including the ability to present results based on strong statistical evidence to audiences of a wide range of technical abilities.
  • Exposure to multi-disciplinary projects, such as imaging or optical systems preferred but not required.

Personal skills

  • Customer oriented team player willing to work with high level problem solvers on a daily basis.
  • Genuine interest in mechatronics engineering, and analysis, as well as in developing precision systems that can perform reliably at customer sites.
