Nasiri Fabrication, the ideal platform for fast development and productization of MEMS innovations

In this webcast, MEMS designers will learn how to accelerate product-delivery cycles by leveraging InvenSense’s CMOS-MEMS fabrication platform, which is now open to all MEMS developers.

InvenSense’s Nasiri Fabrication (NF) Platform, backed by over 100 issued and pending patents, has been used to produce hundreds of millions of the most advanced inertial sensors products for use in leading consumer electronic products. This same platform is available to MEMS developers innovators seeking to develop their latest innovative MEMS devices quickly and in the fastest time to market, and on an established and proven high-volume-manufacturing process. Developers, attending this webcast, will learn the attributes of the NF Platform, recognize the benefits of with its proven CMOS-MEMS integration, and how to collaborate with InvenSense to fabricate their designs prototypes on the process via a NF-Shuttle run, and how to migrate designs to volume production.


Martin Lim joined InvenSense in 2004 as a founder and the Director of MEMS Fabrication.  He has been responsible for the development activities and technology transfer of the Nasiri-Fabrication to foundries.  Mr. Lim has over 20 years of experience in fabrication and process development for various MEMS devices.   Prior to InvenSense, he was the Director of Engineering at SiTek, developing silicon MEMS gyros.  He also served as Chief Technical Officer of OpticNet, an Optical MEMS startup, where he patented, manufactured, and licensed a bi-stable optical switch for telecommunications. While at OpticNet, he established a 6” MEMS development fab to support both optical MEMS and silicon gyro development. He held a research staff position at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, where he was the project leader for the fabrication of a novel acoustic inkjet print head.  Mr. Lim earned MS and BS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley and has been awarded 14 U.S. Patents.

Jean-Christophe Eloy
is CEO and Founder of Yole Développement. Since 1991, he has been involved in the analysis of the evolution of MEMS markets at device, equipment and also materials suppliers’ level. Jean-Christophe Eloy is also board member in several organisations in Europe and in North America


Assaderaghi has more than 18 years of experience in high-performance, mixed-signal design and development. His areas of expertise span semiconductor device physics, process integration, mixed-signal design and MEMS. Prior to joining InvenSense, he served as Sr. VP of Engineering and Operations at SiTime, a company that develops MEMS-based timing solutions. He was responsible for helping this company increase product shipments from less than 1 million units per year to over 50 million units per year. Prior to that, he worked at Rambus as Sr. Director of Engineering, developing high-speed communication circuits for Sony’s PlayStation3 and TI’s digital light processing. He has also held senior management positions at IBM research and Siliconwave, a company that developed Bluetooth solutions for wireless communications.
Assaderaghi received his B.S. in electrical engineering from SDSU, graduating summa cum laude and university valedictorian. He earned his MS and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from UC Berkeley. He holds over 50 patents and has had articles and papers appear in approximately 100 publications.



Jeff Perkins
has been working with emerging technologies for over 20 years and is responsible for Yole Développement’s activities and Business Development in North America. Jeff has a BS in Engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder and an MBA from INSEAD, Fontainebleau, France.
