MEMS for R&D
memsstar’s proven etch processing technology is available for MEMS R&D efforts in a system designed for lab use, the ORBIS ALPHA.
A leader in providing MEMS etch equipment to the MEMS industry, memsstar has designed and sold unique, patented processing systems for vapor phase isotropic etch and surface modification since 2008.
memsstar’s existing product portfolio provides solutions for commercial MEMS R&D through to volume manufacturing utilizing the same process technology and hardware. This allows for the seamless process transfer from R&D to production, a challenge frequently overlooked in the MEMS market.
memsstar’s ORBIS ALPHA etchers bring the company’s proven technology to a platform designed to meet the price and performance requirements of the R&D community.
