Silex first Consumer customer ramped its product to high volume production in 2005. In only a few months Silex managed to ramp a complex MEMS device, incorporating Silex Sil-Via® TSV technology, to 2,000 wafers per month. This customer application sold into cell phones made by the largest mobile phone maker at that time. Silex is currently in the process of building the World’s largest dedicated MEMS manufacturing wafer fab in Beijing with a planned capacity of 20,000 wafers per month. This 200mm wafer manufacturing fab will be a high volume, low mix MEMS foundry manufacturing operation, offering consumer market customers the most competitive state-of-the-art mass production for MEMS.
Some examples of Silex generic Key Technologies incorporated into Consumer applications are:
