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.
Teledyne MEMS, the combination of Teledyne DALSA and Teledyne Micralyne, offers the most comprehensive toolkit of advanced processes for MEMS and microfabrication foundry manufacturing.
From process development to high volume production on both 150mm and 200mm wafers, our foundry customers have successfully brought thousands of designs to diverse markets in a wide range of applications, including automotive, industrial, medical, telecommunications and consumer sectors. We exceed your expectations whether you require 100 wafers a year or 10,000.
