The ever-increasing demand on circuit performance necessitates rapid deployment of optical lithographic as well as early production next generation lithographic tools. Successful execution of the multitude of development programs involved requires careful consideration and implementation of system architecture with special emphasis on program synergy and modularity. This paper presents performance data and system budgeting and allocation for current generation lithographic tools, and building from that basis, discusses evolutionary approaches for critical performance areas and modules. Supporting analytical results regarding performance of these modules are also discussed.
