ASML is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chip-making equipment. Headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, ASML employs more than 21,000 people.
The PAS 5500/750F DUV Step-and-Scan system enables 130-nm mass production using mature 248-nm KrF technology. It combines the imaging power of the improved 0.7 NA 4x reduction lens with the latest multi-spot innovations in the leveling system and the AERIAL II illumination technology including QUASAR, multipole illumination and optional multiple exposure capability. The system is equipped with both TTL alignment and ATHENA for improved alignment accuracy on backend process layers, providing a long term single machine overlay of less than 25 nm.
Further reduction of overhead times in combination with enhancements in productivity on customer jobs provide a production throughput of 130 200-mm wph.
The application of a 2 kHz 20W KrF laser with Variable laser Frequency Control results in the lowest possible Cost of Operation.
