Toppan will acquire more than 25% of SCIVAX shares to become the largest shareholder. The two companies will integrate Toppan's semiconductor photomask lithography technologies and master mold manufacturing technologies with SCIVAX's optical designing and nanoimprinting fabrication technologies. The resulting business will provide comprehensive services from application development, and manufacturing of molds, to end product manufacturing.
Toppan produces master molds by applying the same optics design and micro-fabrication processes used in production of IC photomasks and silicon stencil masks. The company also owns large-scale glass substrate manufacturing technologies and supplies liquid crystal color filters to flat-panel manufacturers world-wide. SCIVAX is the only company in the world offering nanoimprinting foundry services across multiple segments based on its unique technologies.
