How We Do It

We inhabit two worlds: one that's nanometers in scale and one that's global. This micro and macro view gives us a unique perspective. We see electrons wave and industries transform. When you put deep science together with optimism, big things happen.

Expertise

Last year we invested over $600 million in R&D. That's a measure of our commitment to solving the most daunting technical challenges. From our ground-breaking mask inspection tool in 1975 that signaled the dawn of semiconductor process control, to today's broadband plasma technology that discovers defects at the speed of light, we like to arrive first.

Collaboration

Active collaboration multiplies agile thinking. We put this approach into practice at strategic, technical and operational levels with our partners. Working side-by-side both geographically and intellectually, we maximize discovery and solutions.

Operations

We have a proven ability to go from concept to global marketplace. We invent in-house, make strategic acquisitions and share technology across systems to diversify our perspectives and widen the range of our solutions. Comprehensive service programs keep it all optimized.

Foundation

We support a range of community and charitable initiatives with funding and volunteer opportunities: STEM education, health and wellness programs, local aid and international disaster relief. We sponsor the Second Harvest Food Bank in Santa Clara County and fight river blindness in Africa. Not for profit, just for humanity.
