This market briefing will include to sessions: MEMS Manufacturing Technologies & Emerging MEMS Devices. Find below the agenda (to be completed)

Session 1 : MEMS Manufacturing Technologies (June 17)

1:15 PM : Glass Substrates for MEMS Manufacturing – Technology and Market (Christophe Fitamant)

Glass is everywhere: from substrate, to carrier, to Wafer Level Capping - WLC - or 3D MEMS Through Glass Via – TGV. Most MEMS devices and sensors require Wafer Level Capping to protect or seal devices such as TPMS or some optical MEMS. Main drivers are cost, form factor and higher level of integration mainly supported by consumer applications that require less than 1.0 mm total package thickness. Wafer Level Packaging using Glass wafers is key enabler to be part of the fast growing market of consumers and automotive sensors.

1:40 PM : SEMulator3D - A Virtual Fabrication Environment for MEMS and Semiconductors (Christopher Welham)

We describe a software platform that offers a range of development capabilities for the manufacture and assembly of MEMS and Semiconductor devices. The platform provides a systematic virtual development approach that avoids conventional trial-and-error experimental methods. Key capabilities include Virtual Fabrication, Process Variation Studies, Virtual Metrology, Design-Process Interaction and Predictive Modeling. Joint projects with leading foundries such as XFAB, Infineon and IBM are described that demonstrate the impact on the real manufacturing world…

2:00 PM - Q&A

2:10 PM - Networking with coffee, finger foods and networking

Session 2 - Emerging MEMS Devices (June 18)

1:15 PM : Emerging consumer applications are boosting the growth of the MEMS pressure sensor market and reshuffling the main players (Christophe Fitamant)

Pressure sensors are playing an important role in modern industries. MEMS pressure sensor are one of the very first MEMS components appearing in the microsystem world and are already widely adopted in different applications for their high-performance, low costs and small sizes. Yole Developpement provides a global overview of the current MEMS pressure sensor technologies, market and competitive landscape for automotive, industrial, medical, consumer and high end applications
After years of limited growth, the MEMS pressure sensor market is growing again due to consumer electronic applications.  For smartphones and tablets, it starts following the model of accelerometers and gyroscopes, resulting in significant growth.

Speakers :

Christophe Fitamant, Sales & Marketing Director, Yole Développement
Christophe Fitamant joined Yole Développement in 2013 to lead Média and Sales activities.
He holds an engineering degree of INP Grenoble - Phelma - with a major in Chemical Process Engineering. He started his career at IBM Corbeil-Essonnes as process engineer before leading the Atmel Fab 7 Rousset start-up for Applied Materials. He’s lived in California when he managed the Applied etch product support group for Taiwan and Japan. Back to France for Lam Research he first took the responsibility of the ST Crolles site, before moving to Business Operations, followed by Business Management, Business Development and ultimately Sales Account Management for Europe. With the acquisition of SEZ in Austria by Lam in 2008, he led Sales and Marketing for Lam penetration in MEMS and Advanced Packaging for Clean.

Christopher J Welham, Worldwide Applications Engineering Manager, Coventor

Chris Welham studied at Warwick University where he gained a BEng in Electronic Engineering in 1992 and a PhD in Engineering in 1996, which was focused on resonant pressure sensors. He then worked for Druck (now GE Druck) developing commercial resonant sensors and interface electronics. He moved to Coventor in 1999 as a Senior Application Engineer for Europe and now manages the Worldwide Application Engineering Group for MEMS CAD Tools from Coventor’s Paris Headquarters.
