AMSTERDAM, Oct 19 (Reuters) - The chief executive of Dutch semiconductor equipment maker ASML Holding NV (ASML.AS) said one more of its products falls under new export restrictions rules affecting China announced by the U.S. this week.

The Twinscan NXT1980Di tool can be used to help make both relatively advanced computer chips as well as mid-range and older chips.

"In principle the 1980s would fall under the export control restrictions, but only when ... (they) are used for advanced semiconductor manufacturing," CEO Peter Wennink said at a press conference late on Wednesday.
