Bringing the future within reach

ASM creates the building blocks of a better tomorrow

Chips (or integrated circuits) make the impossible possible. Technologies that were once unthinkable become real: from autonomous vehicles to the next gaming console. Our technology enables the production of those chips.

1.1 trillion chips sold per year, globally

140 chips sold per person, per year on average

3 months approx time required to make one chip

2000+ chips needed for one electrical vehicle

Technology and products

We have a proven track record of innovation, spanning a wide range of equipment and process technologies used by the world’s leading semiconductor manufacturers.

Explore our technology
  • Atomic Layer Deposition

    Atomic Layer Deposition, or ALD, is one of our technological solutions that works at a tiny level to make a huge difference.

  • Epitaxy

    Epitaxy, often called Epi, is the process of depositing highly controlled silicon-based crystalline films, a critical process technology for creating advanced transistors and memories, and for wafer manufacturing.

  • Silicon carbide

    Process equipment for epitaxial deposition of silicon carbide (SiC) is a fast-growing market, mostly due to the material’s benefits for electric vehicles. With our history in epitaxy equipment, this is a natural fit for our line-up.


    PECVD is another process solution we offer to deposit dielectric thin films at relatively low temperatures.

  • Vertical furnaces

    Vertical furnaces offer very high productivity solutions for a wide range of thermal processes including low pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD), diffusion and oxidation.
