DuPont Photomasks, Inc. announced 25 January 2005 that it has expanded photomask production capacity at its facility in Singapore in response to growing demand from Asia-Pacific semiconductor markets. The company said it has added a laser pattern generator line and inspection and support equipment for volume production of photomasks, increasing capacity at the 5-year-old facility by approximately 25%.
