More MEMS application examples

Micro-fabricated devices are finding their way to the front-end of medical equipment, interfacing between body and machine and enable better and cheaper diagnostic equipment.

Our technology platform for micro- and nanotechnologies is very suitable for the manufacturing of MEMS sensors for measuring flow, pressure, temperature or acceleration.

A typical example of micro devices with high potential in e.g. analytical and healthcare applications are micro sieves.

In an organ-on-a-chip a human organ is reproduced in its most elementary form, designed to reproduce relevant physical factors in the human body.

Sensor and actuator applications: large area high-precision silicon gratings for IR spectral analysis, outcoupling of light from solid-state lasers via microlenses, special coatings, or light guidance in silicon waveguides.

For RF applications we have made several MEMS applications like micro-machined micro-wave cavity filters, submounts, interposers and devices for RF front-end protection.

We offer several services on 6” wafers (max), typically provided by the customer. See how this could benefit you?
