Microfabrication is the foundational technology and platform for creating microsystems. While not technically MEMS, Microfabrication techniques are borrowed from MEMS processes and provide fixed micro-structures and assemblies that serve a wide range of functions and applications.
Engineering a microfabricated device requires a myriad of decisions regarding materials, techniques and process steps, and requires an experienced team. Whether the immediate need is for proof-of-concept, process definition or process transfer, partnering with the right microfabrication provider is a strategic decision that contributes significantly to competitive advantage and a company’s bottom line.
Examples of microfabrication can be found in products like miniature connectors in smartphones, micro assemblies for medical devices and precision industrial tooling.
