Cymer is the largest supplier of deep ultraviolet light (DUV) and extreme ultraviolet light (EUL) required in photolithography of semiconductor manufacturing process. In 2013, Cymer was acquired by ASML, the Dutch semiconductor equipment manufacturer, as an independent subsidiary. Cymer is the largest supplier of deep ultraviolet light (DUV) and extreme ultraviolet light (EUL) light sources required in the photolithography process when manufacturing semiconductor chips.
Cymer manufactures key components for the chips in our phones and other smart devices. But when Cymer wanted to reduce its neon gas usage in response to a global slowdown, the company needed more predictive analytics. So Cymer implemented the Denodo Platform.
Data was scattered over myriad systems, impeding Cymer’s ability to engage in fine-grained data management and predictive analytics. In addition, it seemed prohibitively time-consuming and costly to move the data. So Cymer leveraged the Denodo Platform to establish a logical data warehouse above the company’s disparate data sources.
The logical data warehouse uses data virtualization to connect data marts, an operational data store, and a big data source, and it delivers the consolidated views across a wide range of applications. The Denodo Platform met Cymer’s expectations in terms of data access, speed, and reliability. By seamlessly unifying the disparate data sources, the Denodo Platform supports advanced data modeling, predictive analytics, and enhanced visualization, enabling better strategic decisions on optimizing neon gas usage. Cymer has reduced its neon gas usage beyond expectations, while also keeping its machines running at optimal capacity and reducing its operating expenses.
