Creative Sensor to produce liquid lenses by year-end 2006

Creative Sensor Incorporated (CSI), a Taiwan-based maker of color contact image-sensor modules for multi-function peripherals, will invest about $3.1 million in a production line for liquid lenses, with small-volume shipments slated to begin by the end of 2006, according to company president Doris Hsu.

The production line, which will be installed in CSI's manufacturing site in Wuxi, China, will initially have a production capacity of 100,000 liquid lenses a month, using techniques licensed from the France-based Varioptic, Hsu added.
