Markets We Serve
Automotive. Biomedical. Agriculture. Industrial. We work with inventors, creators, and visionaries in each of these broad markets to introduce thousands of diverse high-quality MEMS products to buyers worldwide.
Unlike high-volume foundries that produce millions of mass-market devices monthly, we are dedicated to the small-volume high-mix projects that showcase what’s possible with MEMS.
We’re comfortable with the sophisticated and the challenging. And we recognize that just because no one’s ever done it before, doesn’t mean it can’t be done.
All you need to do is to take the first step. Interested in learning more? Take a tour of the markets we serve.
MEMS sensors are advancing the automotive experience beyond what we could have imagined just twenty years ago. They’re keeping us safer through advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), driver alertness monitoring, in-cabin air quality monitoring, and automated parking.
A diverse set of MEMS sensors—including pressure and proximity sensors, MEMS microphones, and gesture recognition sensors—play a significant role in automotive infotainment systems.
With stringent safety regulations and long design-to-delivery cycles, automotive can be a difficult market to crack. Yet without risk, there’s no reward. Let us help you realize the reward by manufacturing your market-differentiating MEMS device for the lucrative automotive market.
Biomedical sensors are transforming our health and well-being. Wearable sensors monitor our hydration, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and blood glucose levels. Some even detect atrial fibrillation, a typical predictor of heart failure and stroke.
More complex biomedical sensors are key to molecular diagnostics of diseases, such as SARS-CoV-2, influenza, and cancer. Ingestible biomedical pill sensors can send digital alerts if an aging parent hasn’t taken her medication.
And that’s just the beginning. We partner with engineers from academia and R&D as well as innovators from companies of all sizes to manufacture an array of life-enhancing health and biomedical sensors.
For thousands of years, farmers had to rely on their eyesight, taste, and touch to inspect the health of their crops. Once more, MEMS has changed the landscape. As a foundational part of precision agriculture, environmental sensors monitor soil moisture, humidity and temperature, and soil nutrients. Now agricultural growers can access data gathered from wirelessly connected MEMS sensors to evaluate crop health right from their smartphones.
Precision agriculture demands MEMS sensors that are robust enough to operate accurately and reliably in all weather conditions. Attuned to the particular needs of agricultural sensing, we deliver the manufactured parts that tick all the boxes for precision agriculture.
The industrial sector is chock-full of sensors. Just think about the smart home. The thermostat in the living room registers temperature and humidity, adjusting the HVAC system accordingly. The security system features motion sensors in the living room and bedrooms, and glass-break sensors on the windows. To give you another dimension, it integrates with the image sensors in the video doorbell.
Image sensors play a starring role in intelligent vision systems. Combined with AI software, they monitor vehicle congestion on highways and traffic lights at intersections. They inspect bridges and rail lines for faults. And that’s just the starting point.
Though tiny in scale, sensors have a major impact on the factory floor. Pressure sensors monitor vibration and shock in equipment, performing predictive maintenance. Image sensors in machine vision systems inspect semiconductors, flat panel displays, printed circuit boards (PCBs), and other manufactured goods for defects. Pressure sensors and inertial measurement units (IMUs) are common in most service robots, which may include vision systems of their own.
Let’s talk about MEMS and imaging sensors for industrial markets.
