In order for the MEMS industry to replicate the success of the CMOS fabless model, there is a need for a similar standardized process technology that can be leveraged by a breadth of MEMS developers. This will ultimately lead to the proliferation of disruptive MEMS-based solutions for a plethora of applications including motion sensing, navigation for location-based services, wireless communications, health and environmental sensing and many others. This paper describes the challenges for MEMS standardization and introduces the patented Nasiri-Fabrication® (NF) Platform that is open to designers via a NF-Shuttle. The NF Platform is a versatile process that can support multiple products, address all cost contributions, and is already deployed at the top 2 tier-1 CMOS foundries.
