UMC Produces Customer CMOS-MEMS Sensor Products

Taiwan Jan. 19, 2011

A customer microphone product using UMC’s CMOS-MEMS technology has achieved successful function verification, with highly competitive specifications of above 56dBA for signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio. Engineering samples are scheduled for the first half of this year, with volume production to begin thereafter.  Development of the CMOS-MEMS accelerometer has also met consumer electronics application specifications (1g – 16g) and achieved readiness for volume production.

UMC works with numerous customers to develop a variety of MEMS and highly integrated CMOS-MEMS products for expansion of high-end daily life and environmental monitoring applications for MEMS sensors.  UMC also offers its own array of CMOS process technology options as part of its MEMS-specific ASIC foundry services supporting various MEMS applications.

"Our success with MEMS, a challenging technology, underscores UMC’s commitment to offer customers a full range of innovative, high-performance, and compact solutions," said Anchor Chen, senior director of Special Technology Development at UMC.  "UMC is delighted to make major strides in the timely delivery of CMOS-MEMS solutions that enable customers to meet the demanding requirements of today’s cutting-edge applications."
