Merging MEMS and wafer-level packaging

MEMS devices are being used today in high-volume applications such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, digital light processors (DLP) and printers. But this doesn’t mean that all MEMS are yet considered mainstream or fully commercialized. One reason for that may be the issues related to packaging MEMS devices. Many people in the industry believe that wafer-level packaging (WLP) is the ideal technology to deal with those packaging issues.
