Jim Koonmen, Executive Vice President of ASML Applications: "ASML’s Holistic Lithography Strategy:  Delivering value in an increasingly complex customer environment"
The semiconductor industry is driven by affordable scaling, which is powered by ASML’s holistic lithography product portfolio.  We provide our customers with everything they need – hardware, software and services – to mass produce patterns on silicon, allowing them to increase the value and lower the cost of a chip.  As the complexity of each successive generation of solutions continues to increase, so does the amount of data generated by each of ASML’s tools.  ASML continues to invest heavily to generate value for its customers from these data streams, employing sophisticated algorithmic and deep learning approaches across a variety of application areas.
