Information Regarding Miyota Development Center of America, Inc.

Citizen Finetech Miyota, a subsidiary of Citizen Holdings in Japan, acquired Micron’s display business unit in August 2012, and established Miyota Development Center of America (MDCA). MDCA’s core expertise is in Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal (FLC) R&D and manufacturing in addition to custom VLSI design. These FLC materials and silicon designs find application in consumer products ranging from viewfinders in digital still cameras and digital video cameras to extremely small projection devices.

MDCA’s eighteen team members located in the Campus at Longmont combine the fast switching properties of FLC with novel silicon designs to deliver high resolution display solutions with a strong competitive advantage in size, cost, and power. MDCA took over the Longmont site from Micron/Displaytech and made the decision to remain in this facility because the “tech activity and lifestyle in Boulder County allows us the opportunity to attract and retain the talent we need”, according to Site Manager Brion Koprowski.

MDCA’s President, Mr. Takahiro Fujisawa adds that MDCA is continually considering additional applications for the unique advantages of our liquid crystal and silicon technology. Development of these additional business opportunities will drive growth for MDCA at our Longmont site.
