Cymer hires AMAT roadmap exec to lead EUV development

January 8, 2012 – Cymer has hired Klaus Schuegraf, former exec in Applied Materials’ semiconductor technology group, to lead its EUV engineering and development programs.

"Klaus’ deep industry experience and proven product development track record add significantly to the strength of our EUV management team, especially important as we transition from 3100 pilot sources to the first 3300 production sources," stated Cymer founder/CEO Bob Akins.

Schuegraf previously was corporate VP and CTO for AMAT’s Silicon Systems Group, responsible for overseeing the company’s semiconductor products technology roadmap.
