(May 12, 2005) Hsinchu, Taiwan &#8212 ChipMOS Technologies’ 70% owned subsidiary, ChipMOS Technologies Inc. (ChipMOS Taiwan), is prolonging its long-term agreement with Himax Technologies Inc. through 2008, having worked together since 2003.

Under the terms of the contract, Himax has revised its future requirements of tape-carrier-package/chip-on-film (TCP/COF) with a significant increase in demand to ChipMOS, and will shift additional percentage increases of its chip-on-glass (COG) business to ChipMOS.
