We make machines that make chips; the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems. We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

Software at ASML

Our lithography systems operate at the edge of what is technically possible: we control positioning to the nanometer and temperature to the millikelvin, even as modules in our machines accelerate faster than a fighter jet at takeoff.
Building the hardware that is capable of such feats is just half of the equation: we also need the embedded software that can realize that performance, in real time, every hour of every day, 365 days a year.

Next to the software that controls our machines, we also build pure software products – based on sophisticated simulations of our lithography systems – that help our customers to optimize chip designs for manufacturability.
A third type of software, finally, is the glue between different machines: taking in measurements, calculating the necessary corrections and feeding them back to the lithography system to keep its performance stable.

Software Graduate Program

Have you recently graduated or will you graduate in the upcoming months? Do you want to know and learn what working as a software engineer in a professional company is like?

The ASML Software Graduate Program is a fantastic opportunity to kick-start your software career. Join ASML as a graduate and you’ll join a class of 12 graduates to be trained in all aspects of the software development process. From requirements to delivery to the customer. Step by step you will be taken through the processes, templates and examples, to prepare you for your first project deliverable at ASML.

Six and half weeks of full-time training, workshops and assignments. Next to this, you will be trained in Agile development methods, presentation techniques, cultural awareness, and personal effectiveness.

Java Development at ASML

There are many reasons why Java development at ASML is unique, but perhaps the single biggest reason is the combination of complexity and very high volume of data. ASML not only manufactures lithography machines, it also manufactures a wafer metrology system called YieldStar. This microscopically measures the wafers at various stages of chip production and generates terabytes of data. The data is processed by the Java applications to identify and correct small inaccuracies in the manufacturing process.

The Java software that ASML develops must be extremely reliable, precise and often involves complex mathematical models. It must also deal with the huge amounts of data that the YieldStar metrology system delivers. This combination of complexity and volume is extremely rare and presents many interesting challenges to the developers.
