Photovoltaics World Launch
We have been covering the photovoltaics manufacturing industry for quite some time in Solid State Technology and a variety of other PennWell brands, most notably Renewable Energy World, Laser Focus World, Vision Systems Design and Power Engineering.
Analysts: “Long, dark season” ahead
Many OEMs held off on the usual holiday-season production ramp amid expectations of weak consumer demand due to the global economic crisis, and this has created a ripple effect all along the electronic systems supply chain from ODMs and EMS companies to chip packaging and foundries, and ultimately causing a shortfall in 4Q08 chip orders, notes Gartner in a research report.
Haze and sun for mask symposium
Ever since lithographers began exposing with 193nm DUV light, photomasks have accumulated photochemical haze that eventually congeals into crystalline defects.
