The article states that Nanoident AG has invested €12m in its chip printing facility at Linz, Austria. According to company founder and CTO Franz Padinger, this is a tiny fraction of the cost needed to set up a silicon wafer fab. The manufacturing facility is already delivering sample quantities of sensor products and CEO Klaus Schroeter anticipates that this will ramp up to production volumes within months.
