The advanced 200-mm capacity will allow Freescale to explore and integrate new MEMS capabilities and address major competitive challenges, such as power consumption, cost effectiveness and form factors. First developed in the 1970s, MEMS-based sensors remain at an early stage of product cycles. Freescale continues to design and manufacture more sophisticated and highly integrated piezoresistive and capacitive sensors. MEMS technology enables signal conditioning, connectivity, embedded control and innovations in firmware and software.
