A.M. Fitzgerald and Micralyne partner to bring MEMS concepts to HVM

July 12, 2011 — Pure-play MEMS foundry Micralyne Inc. and A.M. Fitzgerald & Associates (AMFitzgerald), a MEMS product development firm, partnered to fast-track product commercialization. Customers can move early-stage designs through proof-of-concept to volume manufacturing via AMFitzgerald’s expert MEMS design and rapid prototyping services and Micralyne’s high-value MEMS manufacturing experience.

Customers with an "in-depth understanding of the problems addressed by their specific application" do not always have MEMS design or manufacturing experience, said Nancy Fares, CEO of Micralyne. In this partnership, she adds, customers can focus on the concept while the foundry partners focus on manufacturing efficiency and fast time-to-market.

“Our clients need to turn their ideas into silicon. We offer the design, modeling and rapid prototyping that moves them quickly from the idea stage to a foundry-ready MEMS design,” explained Alissa M. Fitzgerald, PhD, founder and managing member of AMFitzgerald. "An important part of our work is the delivery of a proven MEMS prototype—both a mask design and a robust process flow—to the foundry for a fast ramp to high-yield volume production." Micralyne as a manufacturing partner adds significant value through "coordinated design-for-manufacture development and seamless foundry transfer."

Micralyne is a large, independent MEMS foundry. For more information on Micralyne, visit http://www.micralyne.com
