AMSTERDAM, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Semiconductor industry bellwether ASML said on Monday a fire at one of its suppliers, electronic components maker Prodrive, would lead to some product delivery delays in early 2019.

The Dutch company, a key supplier to the world's largest computer chip makers, said in a statement it did not expect any change in 2018 deliveries, and it would take several weeks to assess the overall impact to its business.


ASML makes lithography systems, machines which can cost up to 100 million euros each and are used by Samsung, Intel, TSMC and others to help map out the circuitry of semiconductors.

ASML is the only supplier of tech required for the next generation of microchips (see: 7 nm).

    Please permit me to whore the link to my tribute to my father [].

    Sometime soon I'll be adding the eulogy I gave at his funeral. No one in attendance had the first clue what I was saying as I was screaming the whole time, however my Aunt Peggy asked me for a PDF that she could send to our relatives. But I'm no longer able to find my copy so I just now asked her to send it me.

    Yes I Have No Bananas. []
