Since Tamar is primarily in the 3D IC segment of IC manufacturing, we are seeing strong growth in 2012. More companies are entering this segment and our metrology tools are needed at various points in the process, both FEOL and BEOL.

We expect TSV adoption to drive process tool and metrology tool purchases in 2012, but we expect 2012 is only the beginning of the ramp. TSVs have been on the horizon for a long time, but real adoption is going to begin in 2012. We expect that if we look back in ten years, we will see 2012 as the year it all started.

Tamar does expect to hire across the company with all hiring expected to be technical. Service and applications engineers will be the biggest group, but we do expect to hire development engineers and technical assembly personnel.
