Profile Summary

Anthony Yen is Vice President and Head of Technology Development Center, ASML. He received his undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Purdue University and his master's, engineer's, doctoral, and MBA degrees from MIT. From 1991 to 1997, he worked at Texas Instruments on resolution enhancing techniques and was an early investigator of optical proximity effects and their correction, culminating in its adoption in the manufacture of SUN microprocessors. From 1997 to 2003, he was with TSMC where he first led the development of its lithography processes, making TSMC the first company to adopt 193-nm lithography in the manufacture of (0.13 micron generation of) logic integrated circuits, and then co-led infrastructure development for next-generation-lithography technologies on assignment at SEMATECH. After a three-year stint at Cymer (now part of ASML) responsible for its marketing organization, he returned to TSMC in 2006. As head of Nanopatterning Technology Infrastructure Division, he led the development of EUV lithography, including its mask technology, for high-volume manufacturing which began at the 7 nm node. He has over 130 US patents and 100 publications on the patterning of semiconductor devices and circuits. He is a Fellow of SPIE and the IEEE, and a recipient of the Outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineer Award from Purdue University School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
