What would those trusting knowledge-seekers have thought if they had known that instead of speaking to and for Apollo, the Oracle had simply been exposed to harmful ethylene gas?
New Monolithic Lens Molding (MLM) capability enables up to eight-megapixel-and-higher-resolution devices Chiba, Chiba Prefecture Japan /PRNewswire/ - SEMICON JAPAN -- EV Group (EVG), a leading supplier of wafer bonding and lithography equipment for the MEMS, nanotechnology and semiconductor markets, today announced that it has developed a new micro-lens molding process that can enable volume production of very-high-resolution (up to eight megapixels and higher) wafer-level optics for use in smart phones, pico projectors and myriad other applications. The new Monolithic Lens Molding (MLM) capability, which was developed in-house by EVG's process development team, is available as an option on the company's IQ Aligner UV nanoimprint lithography (UV-NIL) system or can be upgraded to existing equipment. EVG expects to ship its first IQ Aligner with the MLM option in the first half of 2011.
