  • Research
MEMS are expensive to develop: Each new component requires its own fabrication processes. Leti has been working to develop generic manufacturing processes (M&NEMS) since 2010. A new partnership with a major industrial company could have M&NEMS ready for batch fabrication within three years. As the name suggests, M&NEMS combines microelectromechanical parts and a 250 nm-diameter […] >>
