Smart people creating cutting-edge technology (optical lithography light sources) built Cymer, but giving back–to our employees and community–is what sustains us.

In the very early days founders Bob Akins and Rick Sandstrom frequented the Belly Up Tavern, a favorite local music venue, for long discussions, and spent many hours in Rick’s garage conducting research experiments. Thirty years later our mission remains the same: keep Moore’s Law—the prediction that integrated circuits (ICs) would decrease in cost and increase in performance, two-fold, in roughly two-year increments–on track.
