Hitachi FLORA 270W: the first serial water-cooled notebook

We´ve already mentioned that Hitachi was preparing to release water-cooled notebooks. So, it´s happened: the company has presented FLORA 270W to be shipped late in September.


Hitachi´s main theme of the FLORA 270W announcement is the low noise of less than 30 dB.


The notebook features 1.8 GHz Mobile Pentium 4-M, Intel 845MP chipset, 128 MB RAM (up to 512 MB), 20 GB hard disk, ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7500 graphics (16 MB), 24 CD-ROM drive, 15" 14001050 (SXGA+) screen, modern interfaces. It weighs 3.7 kg and is 32627546 mm in size. The price with Windows 2000/XP Professional is about $2700.

New litho platform from Canon

According to industry sources, Canon plans to announce a new exposure tool line.

Among novelties is the FPA-6000 platform supporting and 157 nm Canon tools. 248 nm, 193 nm FPA-6000 based systems are already being shipped.

New 193 nm AS4 tool features NA:0.85 optics, that enables to produce 0.09-micron and smaller chips. Another tool — 248 nm ES5 — has NA:0.80 optics, providing 110 nm chip production. The tools also feature a 500-mm/second, single-stage platform, which is said to have a throughput of 140 300-mm wafers an hour and 170 200-mm per hour.

According to Canon, 157 nm tools will be shipped early in 2005. One of the first customers for the tool is Germany´s Infineon Technologies AG.
