200 mm MEMS Cleanroom

Research and development offer

Fraunhofer IPMS offers its customers the complete service for the development of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems (MOEMS) on 200 mm wafers. The technological development and support of MEMS technologies, from individual processes to technology modules to complete technology, as well as the process-related support of the systems in the clean room, is provided by our team of over 90 engineers, operators and technicians. On customer request, we take over the pilot manufacturing after the successful development or support a technology transfer, whereby the Fraunhofer IPMS covers the technological maturity levels (TRL) from three to eight.
