World-first 200mm “Lab-in-Fab” at ST Singapore accelerates the development of Piezo MEMS
Co-presenting with Zhu Yao (IME)
STMicroelectronics and The Institute of Microelectronics (IME) are working in close collaboration and have created a 200mm Piezo MEMS R&D line within ST’s production facilities in Singapore.
Leveraging both partners’ MEMS R&D capabilities and ST’s excellence in MEMS manufacturing, the “Lab-in-Fab” initiative provides state-of-the-art Piezo process modules to support customers in their MEMS prototyping and to help them make the transition to high-volume manufacturing.
The partnership has paved the way to exciting possibilities thanks to disruptive Piezo MEMS technologies, enabling innovations in emerging applications like smart glasses, AR headsets, LiDAR systems, wearables, and portable healthcare devices.
