Profile Summary

Anthony (Tony) Yen is vice president and head of ASML’s Technology Development Center. From 2006 to 2017, he was with TSMC where he led the development of EUV lithography, including its mask technology, for high-volume manufacturing. The joint TSMC-ASML “One Team” realized, for the first time in the field, an EUV power of 90W in the fall of 2014 and a throughput of 500 average wafers per day for 4 consecutive weeks in the summer of 2015. From 1991 to 1997, as a researcher with Texas Instruments, he worked on various techniques to enhance the practical resolution of microlithography. From 1997 to 2003, he was with TSMC where he first led the development of lithography processes for TSMC's 0.25, 0.18, 0.15, and 0.13 micron generations of logic integrated circuits and then co-led infrastructure development for next-generation lithography technologies at SEMATECH. From 2003 to 2006 he was with Cymer where he headed its marketing organization. Tony received his BSEE degree from Purdue University and his SM, EE, PhD, and MBA degrees from MIT. He is a Fellow of SPIE and IEEE, and a 2018 recipient of Outstanding Electrical ad Computer Enginneer award from Purdue University School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
