Nanotechnology jobs will increase as a result of Dynamax Imaging LLC, a developer of high-performance image sensors, deciding to stay in New York and locate to the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s (CNSE) Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Canandaigua, New York.
This move will spur the creation and retention of more than 100 high-tech jobs and bring CNSE’s STC to full capacity.
&quo;By tapping into the world-class, first-rate capabilities with the most advanced semiconductor equipment at CNSE’s STC, we look forward to advancing our innovative image sensor technologies, developing new products and establishing new partnerships, all of which will enable the company to grow and flourish, and maintain the reputation of New York as the ‘imaging capital of the world,” said Dr. Jim Tan, CEO of Dynamax Imaging LLC.
"This partnership will also help to keep the United States in the forefront of worldwide advancements in high-tech CMOS imaging products, which are necessary for critical applications in many industrial imaging market applications,” Tan added
Dynamax Imaging, which has operations in several countries, will install over $3 million in high-tech equipment. The company will target further development of its extensive and rapidly growing IP portfolio covering pixel, sensor, and system architectures, based on its novel Active Column Sensor (ACS) technology.
Additionally, Dynamax Imaging and CNSE’s STC will work collaboratively to advance technologies for sensors, and for chip-scale and wafer-scale packaging.
The company's CMOS image sensors are used in a host of industries, in products ranging from HDTV camcorders and flat-panel displays in the consumer market, to imaging and biometrics technologies in the scientific sector, to security and surveillance systems for the military.
“We are pleased to have a leading company like Dynamax call New York home, keeping us at the forefront in the field of nanoscale technology,” Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said.
