Oki set to enter MEMS sensor market

Aug. 19, 2004 – Oki Electric Industry Co. has developed its first MEMS-based product, a tri-axis accelerometer module.

The Tokyo-based company said the ML8950, a sensor chip combined with an integrated circuit, is designed for mobile phones as well as other consumer electronic and entertainment products. The module, which Oki said is the thinnest of its kind, will be launched in low volume in October and ramp to high volume by April.

Oki, which has offered MEMS production services since 1999, anticipates sales of $90 million by 2007 for the ML8950.
