The Job

Introduction Are you a student with a background in Software Engineering or Computer Science? Do you have knowledge on design patterns and hardware abstraction? Then this internship could be interesting for you! Background information The EUV Projection software group is responsible for the software of the projection subsystem, which makes images of reticle patterns on the wafer with nanometer accuracy. The projection software performs complex mirror movements and thermal control to accomplish this. To support a growing number of different hardware and electronic configurations and parts, the projection software uses an ASML defined variability pattern. Over the years the pattern has not always been applied correctly, leading in certain areas to an overly complex and difficult to understand way of configuring our projection software. Within the team it is clear that with some careful analysis a redesign can be done to (again) simplify the configurability, which helps with future developments of new variants and testing. Your assignment These will be your tasks during this assignment: Analyze the existing configuration using existing tooling and your own creativity. Propose a vision/simplification that handles the same variance with a smaller set of parameters. Implement a number of these simplifications in the software and propose a roadmap for the remaining items. These would be the expected results: report showing an analysis of the current status with one or more improvement proposals (if possible). at least one simplification implemented in software. Your profile To be the perfect match for the internship, you: Are a student in Computer Science, Software Engineering or any related field; Have knowledge on Design patterns, interface design, and hardware abstraction; Are creative, curious, goal oriented and capable of working independently; Have good communication skills and you understand the value of listening with the aim to understand; Are fluent in English, both verbally and in writing; This is a bachelor or master apprentice internship lasting 3+ months, 5 days per week starting in September 2023. Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a university for the entire duration of the internship. This position requires access to U.S. controlled technology, as defined in the United States Export Administration Regulations. Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such U.S. controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access U.S. controlled technology.
