Cymer’s position as the World’s leader in the development of EUV light source technology has resulted in many new and exciting opportunities. Join Cymer and you will be involved in designing, developing and improving the controls infrastructure for a product that defines the limits of invention. The control loops involve data exchange at speeds up to 100 kHz while data collection for diagnostics purposes is done at up to 1Khz rate. If you have the desire to participate in the challenges faced to be part of a highly skilled organization that self-obsoletes its own products to lead the microchip lithography light source technology, Cymer has an opportunity for you.


This individual will participate in determining the electrical hardware requirements for, and developing solutions for the next generation of Cymer EUV light sources. The selected individual shall work closely with the software and algorithms control teams to develop architectures that can meet the needs of today and support the continuous growth of a complex controls system needed to support the evolution of the technologies used to create EUV light. Challenges include synchronizing the generation of droplets of metal to the firing of multiple high power lasers to cause the generation of 13.5nm laser light, measuring and confirming the efficiency of the process, and then controlling the change of parameters including timing and steering at a 50KHz rep rate.


Works with a team to develop requirements for controls and is the principal individual responsible for the architecture needed to meet the requirements.

Work closely with cross functional teams including gas and vacuum engineers, optical engineers, and scientists to insure controls systems architecture supports the technical needs of the system.

Applies innovative Electrical Engineering solutions to new product development at both the research and productization phases.


Experience with cPCI, VHDL, ENET, ECAT, Fiber-Optics, and embedded control.

Hands on controls hardware design and architecture experience with analog and digital designs.

Knowledge of process and safety PLC

Experience with Schematic Capture, Simulation and Design Tools (OrCAD, PSpice , PADS, Xilinx preferred)

Experiences with FMEA and use case tools to develop requirements.


Specialist in advanced technical or business skills. Individuals with a customer focus have developed the acumen to cultivate and develop lasting customer relations. May have advanced degree (Master's, PhD). Minimum of eight (8) years of experience is required

Requires a Bachelor’s or Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering.

Requires design and architecture experience in relevant technologies.
