According tomedia reports, ASML, a supplier of lithography systems in the semiconductor industry, delivered 26 ultra-ultraviolet lithographs (EVs) last year, according tomedia reports, about half of which are for large customers, according to Omdia, a research firm. ASML has previously announced that it will deliver 26 ultra-UV lithographs to customers in 2019. Of those, eight were delivered in the fourth quarter. ASML also revealed that nine of the 26 ultra-UV lithographs delivered last year were the latest models, the NXE: 3400C.
Omdia, a British research firm, speculates that about half of the 26 ultra-UV lithographs delivered by ASML last year are aimed at TSMC.
TSMC officially started mass production of 7nm products in 2019, which can only be operated by eUvs with very short wavelengths. Data show that the wavelength of the EUV light source is about 15 times shorter than the current light source wave length of the deep ultraviolet microshadow, so it can achieve the goal of continuously reducing the line width size.
In the field of wafer foundry, TSMC holds about half of the world’s share.
In addition, Samsung Electronics, Intel, etc. have also purchased ASML’s ultra-UV lithography equipment.
ASML serves the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers, creating chips that are widely used in power electronics, communications and information technology products.
ASML is headquartered in Veldhoven, the Netherlands. Production sites and research and development facilities are located in Connecticut, California, Taiwan and the Netherlands. The CST and training facilities are located in Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Taiwan and the United States.
ASML is listed on the Euronext Amsterdam and NASDAQ. AT THE CLOSE OF TRADING ON WEDNESDAY, ASML (NASDAQ: ASML) WAS UP 2.2 PERCENT AT $278.58, GIVING IT A MARKET CAPITALIZATION OF ABOUT $116.951 BILLION.
