@m00nshiine, thanks for your quick repsonse! That's good info. So, presumably, with the newly acquired litho products from TEL, Applied will have an edge over AMSL...

I totally agree. For these two giants to merge on an equal basis says tons about cooperative moves for the sake of keeping the momentum going in the chip and display industries.

TEL primary products are litho tracks, diffusion furnaces, and etch tools and also have a variety of wet cleans and CVD. They are the market leader in litho tracks. ASML doesn't really have a litho track product or cleans products but they basically have all the others excluding litho scanner.

It strikes me as an excellent move, and probably a necessary one. Either company alone would've faced much greater challenges leading the charge toward the limits of Moore's Law.

The consolidation could be a good news for the industry if the synergies these two companies could actually help to innovate with products.

Another consequence of Moore's Law de-facto demise

Clearly, this is a move to cut costs, reduce redundancies and inefficiencies.  It is a good news for the shareholders and the industry and not so good for the employees; I imagine sales offices will be reduced, marketing trimmed and even R&D will be reorganized.  Another hint from a rapidy maturing industry with an unclear path for the future.

I just never imagined this having followed the industry for over 20 years now.  Amazing.  Wonder if it will be approved.
