Home Markets Consumer Electronics MEMS PROVIDING RELIABLE MATERIALS FOR THE MEMS MARKET With the global proliferation of electronic devices for commercial and consumer uses, the need for MEMS (microelectromechanical) systems continues to grow. One of the basic building blocks for MEMS is the materials used to create integrated circuits. Materion offers precious and non-precious materials that deliver increased performance and functionality for applications ranging from air bags to laptops. We understand how critical it is for materials to have higher purities than those currently available. MATERIAL SOLUTIONS FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF MEMS DEVICES Materion has extensive expertise in materials specifically developed for complex semiconductor processes. We produce customized products that are highly engineered in order to meet exacting film characteristics and uniformities required for MEMS applications. Through the physical vapor deposition (PVD) process, our alloys and compounds sputter thin films on substrates of MEMS components that increase their reliability.
