Hall A



We all use computer chips such as processors, memory and sensors in our daily lives. But how are they created? How did the chip creation process evolve and what future changes can we expect?This session explains how computer chips are physically created by some of the most advanced machines on the planet. Did you know that these chips, nowadays, can contain more than one hundred million transistors per square millimeter?Java software is used everywhere, also in the process of chip manufacturing. In my project at ASML we’re working on a relatively new analytics platform which is used to process the data from the machines. The application then visualizes the results in order to find issues or improvement areas. This information is used to change the configuration parameters of the physical machine in order to create more and better chips. I will explain, on a high level, how our applications look like and which Java technologies we use.
