Jan 2010
Tessera Technologies Inc. of San Jose, Calif., announced today that President and CEO Henry R. Nothhaft was appointed chairman of its board, effective Jan. 1. Formerly the vice chairman, Nothhaft succeeds Bruce McWilliams, who served as chairman since February 2002 and as a director of Tessera since June 1999. McWilliams will continue to serve as a Tessera director. Tessera’s microelectronics products enable smaller, higher-functionality devices through chip-scale, 3-D and wafer-level packaging technology, as well as high-density substrate and silent air cooling technology. Tessera’s imaging and optics products include image sensor packaging, wafer-level optics and image enhancement intellectual property; it also offers customized micro-optic lenses, from diffractive and refractive optical elements to integrated micro-optical subassemblies.


GLOSSARY
chip
1. A localized fracture at the end of a cleaved optical fiber or on a glass surface. 2. An integrated circuit.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
wafer
A cross-sectional slice cut from an ingot of either single-crystal, fused, polycrystalline or amorphous material that has refined surfaces either lapped or polished. Wafers are used either as substrates for electronic device manufacturing or as optics. Typically, they are made of silicon, quartz, gallium arsenide or indium phosphide.
