X-FAB to Exhibit 3-Axis Inertial Sensor Technology at Sensors Expo 2014

Erfurt, Germany, Juni 20, 2014.


Who
X-FAB, the leading analog/mixed-signal and MEMS foundry

What
Will exhibit its open-platform MEMS 3-axis inertial sensor process that is now available for volume manufacturing. This MEMS technology is suitable for a wide range of applications such as mobile devices, consumer goods, games and toys, automotive and robotics applications, and industrial and medical equipment that use 3D accelerometers or gyroscopes. The 3-axis inertial sensor technology comes with a complete set of design rules, process specifications and X-FAB’s own design-rule checking software to verify designs prior to silicon production.

In addition to the MEMS sensor technologies, X-FAB will discuss its modular CMOS process technologies that are ideal for implementing a broad range of sensing applications, signal conditioning and signal-processing devices. For designers of opto-electric sensors, various diodes and transistors are available that can be used as photo diodes or transistors for light-sensing applications.
