MEMS Cost Model and MEMS Price Model

ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS, the electronics industry market research and knowledge network, announces the availability of updated Cost Model for Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS).  The IC Knowledge – MEMS Cost Model is now the MEMS Cost and MEMS Price Model.  The MEMS Cost and Price Model allows the user to easily estimate the manufacturing cost and selling price for most MEMS products. The new 1400 release features a completely redesigned and easier to use interface, new data, process, products, fabs and features. The model support pre-defined processes and products or the user can define their own.

The IC Knowledge – MEMS Cost Model is  the industry standard for cost modeling of MEMS products. Very easy to use tech model allows for up to two MEMS and up to two integrated circuit die in the same package providing a full MEMS product solution. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost. The model supports both pre-defined and user defined products, processes and process steps. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.

The following MEMS Fabs are included in the MEMS Cost Model

1. ADI (Analog Devices)  Cambridge
