Micralyne and SVTC Technologies to Collaborate on 8-Inch MEMS Development and Manufacturing

Micralyne Inc., a leading independent MEMS developer and manufacturer, has announced plans to collaborate with SVTC Technologies LLC, a leading independent MEMS and CMOS commercialization company, to develop and manufacture MEMS devices using 8-inch fabrication technology.

Edmonton, Canada, March 26, 2009 --(PR.com)-- This collaboration harnesses Micralyne’s proven skills in MEMS design, process and manufacturing integration and SVTC’s advanced technology development and engineering expertise to provide customer’s with a one-stop shop for design through manufacturing at a competitive cost.

Through this endeavor Micralyne will obtain access to SVTC facilities in San Jose, CA and Austin, TX to undertake MEMS process development and volume manufacturing. SVTC brings an extensive equipment set together with a strong heritage of technology commercialization and engineering expertise. In addition, the SVTC fabs possess unique capabilities like atomic layer deposition and advanced lithography. Access to these capabilities will allow Micralyne to meet the growing demands of 8-inch MEMS development and manufacturing in a cost effective manner. Chris Lumb, CEO of Micralyne said “We are extremely pleased to work jointly with SVTC to accelerate our customers’ volume manufacturing needs. Through SVTC we can provide our customers a cost effective path from development to volume manufacturing.”

The collaboration will also allow SVTC to access MEMS process development and scale‑up expertise from Micralyne. Dave Bergeron, CTO of SVTC, echoed this saying “Micralyne is a recognized leader in MEMS process technology and manufacturing. To have access to Micralyne’s extensive engineering resources will help us further strengthen our MEMS offerings.”
