A Sharper Focus on Emerging Semiconductor Applications
The semiconductor market represents the largest set of applications within Materion’s Advanced Materials business, and it is targeting specific emerging technologies in the wafer size market 200mm and below. Increasingly, 200mm wafer fabrication facilities are being repurposed for high-growth applications such as microelectromechanical switches (MEMS) and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs).
Materion worked with a major global medical imaging equipment manufacturer for several years to provide a non-magnetic material for sealing their MEMS into a hermetic package. The solution is now a component of the imaging system, which came to market in 2014.
