Truly impressive, even heroic, that they were able to accomplish this so quickly.

Looking at the last photo of this image gallery, some of you may have thought: "What’s up with a baseball cut out in the middle of this group picture?" The cut out, as it turns out, shows Yukiko Ueno, a softball pitcher for Japan’s national team. And she is also a Renesas employee at Naka fab. Ueno, a pride and joy of the fellow Naka fab employees, was the first pitcher ever to produce a perfect game at the Olympics against China in Athens. Ueno’s colleagues wanted her to be represented in the photo.

As we reported, for a long time, we had never been able to see photos inside Naka fab after the quake. The image gallery posted here should give you a good sense of the extraordinary efforts it took to rebuild the fab. Don't forget to view the video clip, also rleased by Renesas, and hear their voices! http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-blogs/rambling--round/4218474/Post-quake---The-finest-hour--of-Renesas-and-the-industry

This is great news indeed and the best part is they finished this three months earlier than anyone had expected. This goes to show the hard working nature of Japanese people.
