ASML has had a great start to the New Year with several new orders placed with the lithography equipment leader that total over US$108 million. TSMC has begun 2012 with a new wave of purchase orders with leading equipment suppliers.

The first purchase order placed with ASML was worth approximately US$19.03 million, said to be for a batch of equipment, though in the real world would either 1 ArF tool or a couple of refurbished systems, perhaps KrF’s.

However, the most significant order is worth approximately US$89.4 million, which would comprise several tools, unless it is for a EUV machine. No specific details were given by TSMC for both purchase orders.
