Smaller ICs and larger LCDs are helping to create a richer information society
Each time a new mobile phone or tablet PC model comes out, it is smaller, thinner and lighter. Furthermore, functions have evolved beyond voice and data communications to offer a seemingly endless flow of multifunctionality and sophistication, from information collection and personal organization to banking, shopping and a host of other functions.
In contrast, LCD televisions at home and electronic street displays are becoming ever larger, bringing more entertainment into our lives and making a wealth of information and conveniences available to us on a daily basis. The force behind the improvements in today's information society has been the evolution of semiconductors (ICs, etc.) and liquid crystal displays (LCDs). And playing a vital role in this evolution has been the IC and LCD stepper/scanner technology of Nikon, the optics specialist.
