Scanner Technologies Blasts the nVidia Pixie! Clap If You Believe in Ball Grid Arrays!
New Mexico-based Scanner Technologies Scanner Technologies has announced that it has sued graphics card manufacturer nVidia for infringement of its patents on "methods of three-dimensional inspection" to allow more efficient manufacture of ball grid array devices. Ball grid arrays being evidently a more advanced method of packaging integrated circuits used in graphics cards. Why Scanner chose to go after this cute winged CGI demo is unknown, but we are awaiting the next lawsuit against Cap'n Hook and the Lost Boys.
