ISSYS completes MEMS product manufacturing expansion

(October 11, 2010 – Marketwire) — Integrated Sensing Systems Inc. (ISSYS) has completed its 2010 manufacturing expansion project, adding 5,400 square feet to its existing facility in Ypsilanti, MI. The expansion is dedicated to high-quality manufacturing of system-level products based on ISSYS MEMS chips that are fabricated in its current cleanroom facility. The expansion began in late 2009.

The ISSYS expansion includes assembly lines, production laboratories, clean assembly/packaging rooms and calibration areas for both medical and industrial products. The new floor space also includes a combination cleanroom and Faraday cage for final assembly and calibration area with capacity for over 10,000 units/year of ISSYS’ wireless, batteryless medical implants.

"ISSYS’ MEMS cleanroom facility has the capacity to produce several thousand MEMS chips. The expansion area allows ISSYS to manufacture system-level products based on these enabling MEMS chips. These products include wireless, batteryless, sensing implants (applications include congestive heart failure and traumatic brain injuries), and industrial fluidic devices such as the FC10 methanol concentration sensor, FuelSense, MassSense, and UL-approved density and flow meters," said Dr. Nader Najafi, ISSYS president and CEO.

This new manufacturing site will allow ISSYS to ramp up the production of its MEMS-based microdensity sensors and eventually the MicroCoriolis mass flow meters. The latest product, the FuelSense density meter, is gaining traction in the monitoring of fuel and petrochemical quality, fuel custody transfer, fuel type and fuel blending markets, taking over share from density meters based on steel resonating tubes. Phase I expansion accommodates production of over 10,000 industrial units per year.

ISSYS provides advanced MEMS technologies for industrial, medical devices, microfluidic and scientific analytical sensing applications. For more information, visit:
