Who is Cymer?
Our mission? Keep Moore’s Law—the prediction that integrated circuits (ICs) would decrease in cost and increase in performance, two-fold, in roughly two-year increments–on track. You won’t see the Cymer logo on your cell phone, tablet, or smartwatch, but chances are the microchips inside those devices were created with a Cymer ultraviolet light source. So even though there won’t be a Cymer commercial during the Super Bowl, we’re proud to deliver the photolithography light sources chipmakers and hardware manufacturers need to produce the next generation of electronics.
Our products consistently set the pace of innovation, offering a complete range of light source technologies for semiconductor manufacturing applications.
We’re part of one of the world’s largest semiconductor capital equipment companies thanks to our merger with Netherlands-based ASML in 2013.
All together we’ve donated close to $11 million since 2005, and we’re always setting and working towards new goals, pushing ourselves to improve the world for future generations.

Benjamin Franklin was a pretty sharp guy. He served as President of Pennsylvania and was the first scientist to state that electric charge can only be collected, not created—aka the Law of Conservation of Electric Charge. He also pointed out that learning happens through involvement, and that is the underlying principle of the Cymer-ASML Paid[…]
What is a Deep Ultraviolet light source and how does it work? Your phone, tablet, phablet, and an increasing number of electronic devices are powered by integrated circuits (aka microchips). Each chip is the end product of the semiconductor lithography process, an integral part being the optical lithography step that is enabled by a light[…]

A distance of roughly 6,600 miles (10,661 kilometers) separates San Diego and Ukraine. So how, why, did the conflict between Ukraine and Russia lead, at least in part, to the Cymer Neon Reduction Program? The semiconductor industry, and specifically the photolithography process, consumes more than 70 percent of the world’s neon production. In the entire[…]
