MEMS Global Landscape Overview and Challenges

ISES Docs:

The requirements for a successful semiconductor ecosystem will be discussed along with the global distribution of CMOS and MEMS foundries and OSAT packaging participants in the industry. A cost breakdown for the wafer fabrication, packaging and test of typical MEMS products will be overviewed. A Case Study of the speaker’s experience in starting up a MEMS semiconductor industrial park and high-volume 200mm wafer fab in China will be outlined. The element required to design, construct, staff and equip this wafer fab will be part of the Case Study. Applying the lessons learned in China to starting a similar foundry facility in Oman will be covered, as will potential strategies for building a local semiconductor ecosystem in the Gulf region. Comparison in capabilities and development strategies between similarly sized Asian countries like Singapore and Malaysia and that of Oman’s will also be discussed.
