Himax Technologies, a leading producer of CMOS image sensors, semiconductor devices and power management devices, has placed a repeat order for an IQ Aligner UV nanoimprint lithography (UV-NIL) system from EV Group. The IQ Aligner system will be shipped and installed at Himax’s Tainan facility in Taiwan.

EV Group’s executive technology director Paul Linder commented, “This repeat order from Himax further extends our market and technology leadership in lens molding, with nearly every major wafer-level optics manufacturer having adopted our suite of solutions. We look forward to working with Himax to ensure their continued success in developing the advanced wafer-level optics that support their customers' leading-edge product roadmaps.”

Himax will use the system to facilitate production increases of their wafer-level cameras to be used in notebook computers, mobile phones and other electronic consumer devices. The quality of microlenses is a key determinant in the overall performance of a product and forms an integral part of the optical system used in wafer-level cameras.
