The companies have collaborated for more than a year on the development of EUV technology. “Cymer will operate as an independent division and the DUV [deep-ultraviolet] and EUV light source center of ASML,” Cymer Chairman and CEO Bob Akins said. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2013.
