Latest Industry Insights from Draup Braindesk

Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology

Key Technologies
Optical Lithography
  • The photolithography used to produce logic and memory chips is a multi-stage process. Optical Lithography transformed into a high-precision process to produce microchips with light, silicon wafers, and the most precise mirrors in projection optics for ZEISS SMT’s production of semiconductors
DUV Lithography
  • The DUV light is generated by excimer lasers; these gas lasers can generate electromagnetic radiations in the ultraviolet wavelength range. With lithography optics, chip manufacturers can expose with nanometer precision in the range of “deep ultraviolet light” with wavelengths of 365, 248, and 193 nanometers.
EUV Lithography
  • EUV lithography optics from ZEISS SMT are used in production and focuses on future trends such as autonomous driving, artificial intelligence, and 5G for digitalization. The range of ultraviolet light begins below 400 nanometers EUV lithography uses light with an extremely short wavelength of 13.5 nanometers.
