Context of the position

The Business Line Mature Products & Services (BL MPS) of ASML is responsible for the sustaining of the PAS 5500 systems, which are the Lithography systems for 3” to 8” wafers in the ASML portfolio.
The 3” to 8” wafer market is still booming and our customers have requested to support the PAS 5500 platform until at least the next decade. Therefore BL MPS has decided to do a complete overhaul of the electronics to state-of-the-art technology to ensure the lifetime extension to 2030 or longer. This is called the PAS-2030 redesign.
The PAS-2030 redesign is done by the MPS D&E teams in Taiwan and the Netherlands and part of the design work is outsourced. The team in the Netherlands (NL) focuses on electronic rack redesigns and the team in Taiwan (TW) focuses on the other electronics and modules in the system. So you will cooperate with the NL and TW teams as well as design suppliers in Europe and Asia.
