November 2, 2011 — Micronit opened its MEMS division, specializing in the design, prototyping and manufacturing of MEMS devices and wafers based on glass.
The Micronit manufacturing line processes several hundreds of thousands of wafers per year on 100-300mm substrates.
Micronit began manufacturing micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) after completing several projects for customers, and the company’s existing processing and materials capabilities. Prototyping and manufacturing will use many of the same processes and equipment as lab-on-a-chip production, explained Ronny van ‘t Oever, managing director and co-founder of Micronit.
The company will make MEMS for LED applications, photovoltaics, static and active displays, fuel cells and sensors, among others where glass and silicon are combined in devices.
Micronit manufactures microfluidic lab-on-a-chip products and performs other micromachining technologies. The company works mainly in glass but also in silicon, polymers, and other materials. Micronit is ISO 9001 certified. Learn more at www.micronitmems.com.
