James McNamara discussed EI, emphasizing the Company�s growth since its inception and outlined measures taken to remain competitive in business segments that are continually moving offshore. Lois DeFleur then guided a tour of the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM) located at the EI facility.
A collaborative effort by Binghamton University, Endicott Interconnect Technologies and Cornell University, with funding from the United States Display Consortium (USDC), the CAMM will pioneer microelectronics manufacturing research and development in a roll-to-roll (R2R) format. These efforts will result in flexible, rugged, lightweight electronic components and innovative products that will be critical to next-generation applications in areas such as military and homeland security, lighting, energy and power generation, displays, and product identification and tracking.
�R&D is our engine for the creation of new products and intellectual property as well as an important tool for solving today�s manufacturing issues. Industry and academia collaboration has resulted in a truly impressive CAMM facility that will be the backbone of tomorrow�s electronics and helps to support our long range technology efforts,� commented James McNamara.
