Speeding Product Commercialization with a Comprehensive MEMS Foundry

Bringing a MEMS enabled product to market can cause welcomed industry disruption and business success. Commercialization of this product can be a long and costly path if a proper roadmap is not used. An experienced MEMS foundry partner is needed for technical collaboration, intellectual property protection, and scaling to volume in a capacity constrained world. The foundry knowledge in driving cost out of a process is essential for competitive market entry.

In this presentation, we will discuss important considerations when bringing your product to a MEMS fab and how to engage based on your stage of development and product lifecycle. We will share the necessary steps to develop and manufacture a high-quality product with a repeatable process, and ensure that you can meet the timing of the market window.
