Re: just in time? not likely for sensors

I worked in an ASIC wafer fab for many years. Large orders are more on a JIT time basic. When you work with most large foundries you order wafers, not die (sensors). Nikon will know how many die per wafer they avg. The will have a few weeks to a few months worth of die "on hand". For many reasons, they will not get 2 years worth of die at one time.
